The Historic Landscape of Caroline County

We identified the locations of the blacksmiths, stables, wheelwrights, and carriage shops in the Choptank River Heritage area primarily by georeferencing the 1875 Isler and 1897 Saulsbury maps of Caroline County.

In the map shown on this page, use the toggle at the upper left to turn on/off background layers for 1866-1897 maps of Caroline and surrounding counties.

Use the grid icon to change the modern basemap from topographic to satellite imagery, roads and streets, or others.

Below the map are lists of identified blacksmiths, stables, wheelwrights, and carriage shops which appear in the map.
