Welcome to the slower lower Eastern Shore of Maryland. Dominated by the north-south presence of Route 13,travel just about 15 minutes south of Salisbury. Hang a right on to Route 363 (Deal Island Rd.) And over the next 15 to 19 miles, watch the landscape gradually change from a mix of farm field & hardwoods to the tall swaying marsh grass & soft pines of Dames Quarter and then to the open water vistas of greater Deal Island. Bring your camera.
These towns of greater Deal Island are located in a northwesterly quadrant of Somerset County, Maryland. The history of this area goes back centuries. Tombstones in local cemeteries can be found dating back to the 1700s.
