The Historic Landscape of Caroline County

 We identified historic post office locations in the Choptank River Heritage area, primarily by georeferencing the 1875 Isler and 1897 Saulsbury maps of Caroline County.

Below the map are lists of post offices which appear in the 1875 and 1897 maps.


See the larger map of  Post Offices the Historic Landscape of Caroline County, Maryland with historical and imagery basemaps.



See our Choptank River Heritage Sites Research map application for the geographic locations of all documented sites.  These sites can be viewed over a variety of topographic, satellite and aerial imagery, and historic basemaps.

Many of the historic sites are described in detail here in the CCHS web site.  Use the website search box above to find pages and posts for sites by name.
