This landing is located at the end of Cedar Grove Road, just east of Oyster Shell Point, on the south side of Choptank River in Dorchester County.  The landing is down stream from Sherman’s Landing and Indian Creek and nearly due south of Goose Point on the Talbot County side.  This landing was used by the Baltimore, Chesapeake & Atlantic Railway Company from at least 1906 to 1911.
