Prince George's County History

Prince George's County was established by the 1695 Maryland General Assembly to be effective on St. George's Day, April 23, 1696, from parts of Calvert and Charles Counties.   As originally constituted, Prince George's included all or part of the current area of Frederick and Montgomery Counties and the District of Columbia.  The county was named for Prince George of Denmark, husband of England's Queen Anne. The county seat is Upper Marlboro.

Probably the best single online source of information about the history of the county is the site of the former Prince George's County Tricentennial Commission, now archived by the Prince George's County Historical Society.  The site also includes a number of links to other sites and a bibliographic guide.
