Much of Talbot County’s history and character is defined by its 600-plus miles of tidal shoreline. In colonial times, the shipbuilding industry flourished in Talbot County. Some early settlers made their living trading tobacco for manufactured goods with English vessels that anchored off the plantation wharves.
