Providence Landing

Other names:  West Providence Landing, possibly Wood Wharf.

This landing is located on the east side of the Choptank River below Kingston Landing. It is identified as “Providence Landing” on “Topographic Map of Caroline County” 1950 revised 1971″ and “Map of Maryland,” 1961 revised 1973 and apparently the same location is identified as “West Providence” on the 1875 Caroline County map found in The 1877 Atlases and Other Early Maps of the Eastern Shore, Maryland. This same map indicates a “East Providence Landing” located just upstream and below Picture Hill Landing. Providence is located just up the river from Providence Landing on “Topographic Map of Caroline County” 1950 revised 1971.

Modern digital street map (2019) those this landing at the end of Wood Wharf Road.
