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.
