Around Greensboro

The quaint town of Greensboro, Maryland, is nestled in the middle of the Delmarva Peninsula on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where its American roots travel across the Choptank River and reach deep into the agricultural soil of Caroline County. The Choptank River’s path meanders up the peninsula from the Chesapeake Bay, cutting through Caroline County, and it is at the great bend in the river that Peter Harrington brought into full bloom his grandfather Peter Rich’s vision of a town. This location was vital to the movement of products to and from people living in the middle of the peninsula, and Greensboro quickly grew into a thriving small port town where businesses, including tanneries and shipbuilding, appeared.

Greensboro’s accessibility to Washington, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Wilmington makes this quiet town a convenient bedroom community with big-town access and rural serenity.

Author Judith Reveal has written in magazines throughout the region and across the country. Judith’s fascination with rural America is highlighted in this book as she brings to life the best of Greensboro’s past, present, and future. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today.

Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
