Visit the F. Scott Fitzgerald Gravesite located at the historic Saint Mary’s Cemetery. While intervening years took Fitzgerald around the world, Maryland never left his
heart. People, places, and experiences in Rockville found their way into his writings. The author's life-long connection to Rockville was maintained through correspondence,
family ties and visits and, in 1940, as his final resting place.

The Josiah Henson Site (formerly called the "Riley Farm/Uncle Tom's Cabin") is a historic resource of local, state, national and international significance because of its association with Reverend Josiah Henson, whose 1849 autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe's landmark novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin. The Riley farm was where Henson lived and worked as a slave from 1795 to 1830. The existing frame building, possibly dating to the late 18th century, was the home of Isaac Riley.
