Steeped in over 300 years of history including Revolutionary War history, Kent County is a place of unique interest to call home.
Locals think of Kent County as "quintessentially rural". Farming and agriculture constitute a large portion of the economy, and during the summer months local markets brim with fresh produce at bargain prices
Other recreational opportunities within the County include hiking, horseback riding and cycling along flat, winding roads leading past dozens of charming B&Bs that stud the countryside. Several excellent sporting clay ranges are also a popular attraction.
Chestertown is home to Washington College, the tenth oldest liberal arts college in the country. Founded in 1782 with the help of George Washington, in appreciation of Kent County's supplying flour to his troops, as well as the patriotic acts of our citizens during the War such as the Chestertown Tea Party, which is reenacted each Memorial Day weekend. This festival celebrates events of May 23, 1774 when, on the heels of the news that the Port of Boston had been closed by the British, local residents boarded the Brigantine Geddes, and following in the recents events in Boston, also tossed its shipment of tea into the Chester River.
Many of the larger towns in Kent county, Betterton, Galena, Millington and Rock Hall are also laden with history - some of the records dating pre-1700. They are ship building and river commerce towns, often visited by the occasional pirate or rum-runner. Black Beard, one of history's more notable pirates, is rumoured to have run aground in Kent County. Some have speculated that Blackbeard's treasure may be near here, instead of possibly buried somewhere along the York River on the Western Shore, but "nobodybut himself and the devil knew where it was"!
