Known as the 'Green Garden County,' Caroline is mostly rural area between the Choptank River and the Mason-Dixon line. It depends heavily on agriculture, the base of its economy for 300 years. The area is growing though, with new commercial and residential developments built for families.


Denton is a small town poised on a hill that overlooks the Choptank River. Since the town’s founding in 1781, the town’s Courthouse Green has been the site of eloquent balls, circuses, baseball games, military parades, hangings, jailbreaks, and fistfights. Errant fireworks celebrating the end of the Civil War nearly destroyed the downtown on July 4, 1865. Today the annual Caroline Summerfest is held on the streets surrounding the courthouse in August.

Outside of town, there’s the fantastic Martinak State Park and great golfing at Caroline Country Club.
