Get to Know Kent County

A Storied Past

Kent County is the second oldest county in Maryland, founded in 1642 by settlers who named it for the county they left in England. The railroad arrived in Kent County soon after the Civil War and farmers and watermen found that their products could be shipped overnight to Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. Farmers grew vegetables and fruits for city markets and watermen harvested enormous numbers of oysters, crabs and fish from the Bay and rivers. Rock Hall became the "Rockfish Capital of the World".

The Chester River Steamboat Company was formed in 1865. They stopped at Chestertown, Rolphs Wharf, Quaker Neck, Spaniards Point and other locations. The steamboat service between Baltimore and Chestertown allowed watermen and farmers a way to transport their perishable produce, rockfish, crabs and oysters.

Chestertown celebrates its history with several annual events. Memorial Weekend is the Chestertown Tea Party Festival. This festival commemorates the 1774 event, where, in revolt against British tax on tea, local lore has it the disgruntled citizens marched down to the Chester River and tossed tea overboard from the brigantine Geddes. Enjoy seeing the reenactment out on the River

Sultanta Downrigging Weekend takes place every Fall and the event has grown to be one of the largest Tall Ship rendezvous in the country. Visitors can view the beautiful illumination of the ships at night and enjoy a weekend of festivities, ship tours and bluegrass music.
