And Watch the Vision Video HERE
Nanjemoy is a hidden treasure in Charles County and a tremendous natural asset for the
state of Maryland. Located less than 30 miles from the nation’s capital, it is home to approximately 3000 people, 2000 great blue herons, 50 nesting bald eagles, a fleet of 160 sunken ships, 50 million year old fossils, and numerous historic and archeological sites from every period of American history. Nanjemoy has a rich history, and a future full of possibilities.
Nanjemoy is a vibrant and diverse community, committed to preserving the natural beauty,
culture and history of the area. The name of Nanjemoy evolved from Native Americans who lived here from the 1600s and 1700s. Some current residents can trace their roots to revolutionary times when George Washington owned land in Nanjemoy. Recent residents have been drawn here by the beauty and solitude of the area.
These residents have joined with other interested citizens to form a vision of the future of our community. While most residents would like Nanjemoy to stay the same, many realize that change is inevitable. This vision proposes to direct this change in a way that will honor the past, to respect our natural resources and to protect our quality of life while addressing current needs and providing a viable community for future generations.
