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:

  • Banks

  • Fish Hatcheries
  • Fisheries
  • Foundries
  • Hotels
  • Ice Houses
  • Millineries
  • Newspapers

We identified these sites primarily by georeferencing the 1875 Isler and 1897 Saulsbury maps of Caroline County.
