at Historic St. Mary's City

Welcome to Teddy Turner Waterfront at St. Mary's College of Maryland. Founded in 1634, St. Mary's City is the fourth oldest permanent English colony in North America, and was the capital of Maryland until 1695. A city whose remains were largely undisturbed by subsequent development, this National Historic Landmark offers an unparalleled look at early America. Archaeological excavations began in this area in the 1930s and continue today. Neighboring Historic St. Mary's City is a living history museum and archaeological treasure. At the City as well as on the College campus, exhibits, reconstructed buildings, and staff interpreters connect life in the 17th century with the present.

Established in 1840 by Maryland's General Assembly as the state's "monument school of the people" commemorating the colony's founding principles. St. Mary's College of Maryland remains a public, liberal arts institution. In 1992, it was designated The Honors College of the state. St. Mary's is a coed, residential school, committed to affordability, accessibility, and diversity; and it is rated consistently among the top liberal arts colleges in the country. Please take some time to explore this inspirational place that is so rich with history and the promise of the future.

Teddy Turner


R.E. "Teddy" Turner



IV first met the St. Mary's College sailing team in 1989 at the Soviet Offshore Championship "Black Sea Cup" in Odessa, Ukraine. Teddy and his team prevailed in the event, but a lasting friendship between the College and the Turner family began. The bond was cemented by Teddy's donation of his offshore sailing yacht, Challenge America, and by his dedicated service to St. Mary's as a College trustee.

In 2000 Teddy Turner started Charleston Boatworks, a full service yacht repair and brokerage company. Teddy promotes junior and high school sailing, leadership training, as well as Special Olympics and recreational sailing through the South Carolina Maritime Foundation and the Charleston Community Sailing Foundation.
