Port Deposit
Description: Some of Port Deposit Maryland's architecture.

Captain John Smith first explored the area that is now Port Deposit around 1608, a time when the only inhabitants were the Susquehannock Indians. The town that subsequently emerged there on the Susquehanna River was known as Creswell’s Ferry prior to 1812. As time went on, the town became a heavily used port where products like lumber, grain, coal, and whiskey were unloaded for trading. There were outgoing goods also—blocks of granite cut from the cliffs behind the town and fish culled from the river—but it was the incoming trade that gave the town its final name—Port Deposit.

The town is on the National Register of Historic Places; its buildings and homes display an eclectic assortment of Georgian, Victorian, Italianate, and Federal styles, providing instant architectural history in a pleasant walking tour.
