The Town Hall on Lawyers Row in Centreville, Maryland

Centreville,
Maryland

Tree-lined streets and a courthouse square distinguish Centreville as both a scenic destination and the seat of local government. The town boasts architectural diversity including homes dating to the 1700s as well as Victorian-era gems. Centreville was carved out of a 400-acre tract of land known as Chesterfield. The town became the county seat in 1782 and has remained the center of county government. Here the visitor will find the oldest Maryland courthouse in continuous use, Wright’s Chance, Tucker House, Old Kennard High School and nearby the Queen Anne’s County Museum of Eastern Shore Life. Grab lunch in town or extend your stay at one of several quaint bed and breakfasts. Walk along the trail at Millstream Park and meander through a nature trail to the Corsica River, spotting blue heron, beaver, and maybe an eagle.
