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…

HISTORIC REVIEW COMMISSION MEETING – The Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, October 17, 2018, has been cancelled.



Due to unanticipated circumstances, the Quarterly Water/Sewer Billing for mid-June through mid-September 2018 is running late. Staff is in the process of finalizing the billing and it is our goal to mail the Utility Bills no later than Monday, October 8, 2018. The due date for payments will be extended to account for the delayed billing. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.


**Reminder: The Town accepts credit/debit card payments in the lobby – there is a 2.25% surcharge fee assessed at the time of the transaction. Stay tuned for updates, as the Town explores Online Bill Pay as another option for managing your Utility Billing Account. **
