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.
