Keene’s Landing

Other names:  (Possibly) Mount Pleasant

This landing is located on the Choptank River north of Two John’s Landing and south of Potters Landing.  This is probably the landing for Mount Pleasant, home of Colonel Benjamin G. Keene. 83  The landing is identified on the 1875 Caroline County map found in The 1877 Atlases and Other Early Maps of the Eastern Shore, Maryland.  This is probably a local name for another landing on the river.  It is not designated on “Topographic Map of Caroline County” 1950 revised 1971.
