The Historic Landscape of Caroline County
We identified and mapped the historic locations of sawmills and grist mills in the Choptank River Heritage area, 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.
Use the grid icon to change the modern basemap from topographic to satellite imagery, roads and streets, or others.
Below the map are lists of sawmills and grist mills which appear in the historic landscape. We also listed all of grist mills and sawmills that appear in the Maryland Historical Trust catalog, Molinography of Caroline County.
See the larger map of Sawmills and Grist Mills in 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.
