Overview


Dorchester County's special blend of past and present, treasured by locals, appeals also to visitors from all walks of life. Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, and Jimmy Carter, performers Annie Oakley, Buffalo Bill Cody, and Ella Fitzgerald, and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors James Michener and Richard Ben Cramer all enjoyed sojourning here. Dorchester County is surrounded almost entirely by scenic waters: the Choptank and Nanticoke Rivers, Hunting Creek, and the Chesapeake Bay. A cruise along these waterways offers long stretches of pristine marsh and uplands that transport visitors to earlier days, when Native Americans traveled these same waters in log canoes. Occasional glimpses of historic homes evoke colonial times. Within these watery boundaries, this largest of Maryland's counties encompasses landscapes and activities to gladden any heart. Railroad and history buffs, hunters, birdwatchers, epicures, and visitors from more hectic locales all find their heart's content in this land of pleasant living.
