Stevensville, Maryland

Stevensville
(Kent Island),
Maryland

Stevensville is a charming historic town that developed after the 1850 sale of two farms owned by James and Charles Stevens. An 1877 tax map showed the town boasted nearly 30 structures, including dwellings, churches, stores, a doctor’s office, a post office, an Odd Fellows’ Hall and a hotel. Stevensville prospered due to its prime location at the center of the steamboat trade system that served both sides of the Chesapeake Bay in the mid-19th century. The railroad came to Stevensville in 1902, and by 1909 the town had two schools, four doctors, a blacksmith and a sawmill. The end of passenger rail service by 1938 and freight line service by 1948 halted the growth of the town. Today, Stevensville is a well-preserved community that retains its heyday 1920s appearance with many of the historic structures intact. The Stevensville Historic District was placed on the National Historic Register in 1986.
