DescriptionColtons Point faces St. Clement's Island, where the Ark and the Dove, carrying the first Maryland settlers, dropped anchor on March 25, 1634. On this Potomac River island Gov. Leonard Calvert and Jesuit Father Andrew White erected a large wooden cross and performed the first Roman Catholic Mass in the English-speaking Colonies. A replica of the Dove is docked in St. Mary's City.
