The charming little town of Chestertown is situated on the banks of the peaceful Chester River and exemplifies the easy, country living of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. It is renowned for its waterfront homes, built during the Revolutionary period, which can be seen from the Chester River Bridge. Georgian mansions along the water remind us of the town’s history, rooted in the Revolutionary era of the 1700s. Chestertown is an excellent place for a walking tour. Examples of period architecture and brickwork abound, much of it in private homes. Downtown Chestertown offers a variety of shops. Continue your driving day trip to the town of Wye Mills that is centered around the Old Wye Mill.
