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.

AUGUST HISTORIC & ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMISSION MEETING – The Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August 15, 2018, has been cancelled.


8/6/2018 –

Dear Denton Town Residents,

In an effort to provide quality trash collection service, the Town of Denton will be placing more emphasis on Chapter 64 (Garbage and Trash) regulations per the Denton Town Code.

Since the beginning of May, Department of Planning & Codes personnel have been alerting Town residents that they would need to be more diligent in following this chapter of the Code once the new waste contractor began picking up the trash.

This information has been spread through the use of door tags, letters, conversations, a post on the Town of Denton website and a post card sent on July 6, 2018 to all residents in the Town.

Beginning with tomorrow’s (8/7/2018) trash collection, Eastern Shore Environmental, LLC has been asked to not pick up any trash that has been placed on the ground for collection.  Town personnel will be following the trash collection vehicle placing a copy of the attached post card on any garbage that is on the ground.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any Town of Denton Department of Planning & Codes personnel for more information at 410-479-3625.

Thank you for your cooperation.
