Lincoln Military Housing Office
Located approximately 45 minutes south of Washington, D.C. and less than an hour from historic Annapolis, Indian Head sits on a 3,500-acre peninsula framed by the Potomac River and the Mattawoman Creek in Charles County, Maryland.
Here, Lincoln Military Housing offers 151 homes within two communities serving the Naval Surface Warfare Center, or IHDIVNSWC.
Charles County offers numerous recreational opportunities for military families, including first-class fishing, biking, kayaking, boating, golf, traditional and fossil hunting at Purse State Park. Encompassing 300 miles of shoreline and yet-to-be developed areas, the abundant wildlife of Charles County includes the second largest population of bald eagles in Maryland. Exciting parks and nature preserves include the Chicamuxen Wildlife Management Area and Friendship Farm Park, each an excellent destination for bird watching.
In addition to the important historical landmarks that surround it, Charles County possesses its own colorful heritage. Port Tobacco—one of the oldest communities on the East Coast—was once the Indian settlement Potopaco and was colonized by the English as early as 1634. Other cultural locations of note include The Dr. Samuel A. Mudd House, St. Ignatius Catholic Church, the African-American Heritage Society, and the American Indian Cultural Center.
