Originally called Rock Hall Crossroads, the city is now a quaint fishing, sailing and recreational boating town situated picturesquely on the upper Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. It is the center of Kent County‘s maritime industries and is also a popular destination for art, music, culture and wildlife enthusiasts. Even before the establishment in 1707, the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries have shaped the economic and cultural development of the Town. In the early years, the Bay served as a commercial link to other populated areas on the western shore, such as Baltimore, Annapolis and Virginia, as well as northern areas such as Philadelphia and New York.
The city was named for a mansion made of white sandstone, and was incorporated in 1908.
Settled in 1706, Rock Hall is a charming Chesapeake Bay village with miles of shoreline, public docking and many marinas. Our artistic community is alive and vibrant with constant inspiration from the unspoiled surroundings; musicians come from near and far for our enjoyment. The restaurants offer everything from steamed crabs served waterside to fine dining to take-back-to the boat selections.
Beginning as a small harbor town, Rock Hall has been an important part of the historical fabric of the Eastern Shore. Watermen and their families have worked the bay for generations which has created a wonderful cornerstone for this close, friendly community. In fact, our welcome sign lets people know that ‘Nice people live here!’
