Historic Sites on the Middle Choptank River

The middle reaches of the Choptank River witness its transition from a major body of water - nearly as wide and the upper Chesapeake Bay - to a more narrow river channel that was the regions “superhighway” a century ago. Plantations and small towns along this section of the river relied on the river for delivery of consumer goods and shipment of their farm and shop products.

You can explore this part of the Choptank from several public landings in both Talbot and Caroline Counties.
