The Lower Eastern Shore of MarylandThe Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland - a great place to visit, work and live.

The history of the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland reveals a web of closely related stories of diverse cultures including Native Americans, Colonists and African Americans who sustained their lives by farming the rich soil and harvesting the treasures of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

Farmers and Waterman, and the prosperity they achieved in supplying food to major cities in the United States  dominate the last century's history of the Lower Shore.  Famous natives such as J. Millard Tawes (governor of Maryland), Harry Clifton "Curly" Byrd (President of University of Maryland), Lem and Steve Ward (famous decoy carvers) and William "Judy" Johnson (first African American in the Baseball Hall of Fame) were all descendants of watermen and farmers.

While the rural cultural is still dominant, the Lower Shore has more recently become a destination for travelers, retirees, students, young families and vacationers.
