Welcome to Denton!

Denton, the seat of Caroline County, is steeped in history. The Town began as a tiny settlement on the Choptank River about 1781. It quickly became a trade center for a fairly wide agricultural area. In the days when commerce between the Eastern Shore and Baltimore was chiefly by water, Denton Wharf on the Choptank River was a busy loading point. Today, Denton still welcomes commerce. Located on the river, the charming town is a perfect place to live and work. Come see our “treasures”, relax and enjoy shopping and dining in our downtown.

Dear Residents,

Starting Monday March 20, our water tower maintenance firm will begin re-painting the Industrial Park Water Tower. This will take a couple weeks to complete. Once done, they will do the same for the Camp Road Water Tower. This is done periodically to preserve the integrity of our water towers. If you have any questions please contact me at 410-479-5446

Thank You,

Mark Chandler

Superintendent, Denton Public Works
