East New Market
Come visit our historic town. During the second half of the seventeenth century, a small village in northern Dorchester County, originally inhabited by Indians, was colonized and the town presently known as Historic East New Market was established. The East New Market historic district was entered in the National Register of Historic Places on October 1, 1975.

Wander through the several acre estate and experience the antiquity of another place and time, as it was lived by both owner and servant.
