|The Dorchester County Historical Society and the Nanticoke
Historic Preservation Alliance have joined efforts to coordinate
"1812 Dorchester Maryland," a year-long series of events that reflect
the life and times of 1812.
We have reached out to many county organizations in an attempt
to partner with as many groups as possible to create a Calendar of
Events that would be varied and interesting to Dorchester County
residents and visitors.
Dorchester County Maryland is the heart of Maryland's Eastern
Shore. Historic to its core with beautiful rural landscapes in all
directions, the county retains a sense of slower paced life much
as it was in the early nineteenth century--a life that today attracts visitors
from more urban settings, who come here for a chance to unwind, recharge
and remember and learn about our mutual heritage.
So if you've only been as far as Easton or St. Michaels, perhaps
it is time you crossed the Choptank River and enjoy what Dorchester
has to offer. And this year, as the State of Maryland
commemorates the War of 1812, here in Dorchester we are sitting back and
remembering the life and times of that period and invite you to join us
as we rediscover our history with these exciting events.
