Overview


The quaint town of Greensboro, Maryland, is nestled in the middle of the Delmarva Peninsula on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where its American roots travel across the Choptank River and reach deep into the agricultural soil of Caroline County. The Choptank River’s path meanders up the peninsula from the Chesapeake Bay, cutting through Caroline County, and it is at the great bend in the river that Peter Harrington brought into full bloom his grandfather Peter Rich’s vision of a town. This location was vital to the movement of products to and from people living in the middle of the peninsula, and Greensboro quickly grew into a thriving small port town where businesses, including tanneries and shipbuilding, appeared. Greensboro’s accessibility to Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Wilmington makes this quiet town a convenient bedroom community with big-town access and rural serenity.
