Overview


Though it was the second-to-last Maryland county to be formed, Wicomico County has a long, rich history celebrated through annual festivals, heritage tourism, and many local museums and preservation organizations. Images of America: Wicomico County is yet another way for residents to commemorate this area whose name sprung from Native American words meaning “a place where houses are built.” Heavily influenced by local waterways, including the Wicomico and Nanticoke Rivers and the Tangier Sound, the heritage of this Delmarva region is preserved in the county seat, Salisbury, and other unincorporated municipalities, including Fruitland, Hebron, and Whitehaven, and the numerous structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wicomico County has grown over the last 20 years from about 60,000 people to about 100,000 people and continues to prosper.
