The Historic Landscape of Caroline County
In addition to general stores, shops, markets, and other mercantile establishments, we identified these miscellaneous enterprises in the Choptank River Heritage area:
- Fish Hatcheries
- Ice Houses
- Plant Nurseries
We identified these sites 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 1850-1900 maps of Caroline and surrounding counties.
