The Hermitage is a historic home located at La Plata, Charles County, Maryland, United States. It is a two story, three bay frame dwelling with a dormered gable roof. The home was built about 1847 in the Federal style, and has a pair of brick, exterior chimneys at one end and a deep wraparound veranda on Tuscan columns. It was built by Major George W. Matthews, a farmer and attorney, whose descendents, beginning in 1870 and continuing through the 1940s, promoted the founding and development of La Plata and the relocation of the seat of Charles County government there from Port Tobacco.
