Cherry Grove is located on the west bank of the Choptank River above Jamaica Point, off the east side of Jamaica Point Road, Talbot County.  Cherry Grove is a Victorian Italianate dwelling similar to Ingleside, both once owned by William Hughlett, a prosperous lumberman, ship builder, farmer and director of the Easton National Bank (see also Belmont, Chancellors Point, Ingleside, and Jamaica Point for other Hughlett related sites).  The house was once outfitted with gas for lighting.
