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.

Breaking News…


(Posted 6/22/17) On the behalf of the Town of Denton, I would like to express deep condolences on the passing of former Councilman Robert Clendaniel. Robert, who served both as Mayor and Council member, was a true steward of our community who advocated tirelessly on the behalf of our residents. He mentored and touched countless people. It was an honor to serve with him and he will be missed by many.

Abby McNinch, Mayor
Town of Denton
