The town of Berlin on Maryland's Eastern Shore was founded on a 300acre tract of land called Burley, part of a land grant to Col. William Stevens that was surveyed in 1677. The town developed on the crossroads of the Sinepuxent Road, going east toward the Atlantic coast and the Philadelphia Post Road, and derived its name from the contraction of Burley Inn, a roadside inn at this popular crossroads. One of Berlin's famous locals was United States naval hero Stephen Decatur, who was born on farm property within the surrounding area in 1779. Today Berlin's Main Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the town has received national attention by having been featured in both Paramount Pictures' Runaway Bride (1999) and Disney's Tuck Everlasting (2002) films.
