9780738542393: Crisfield: The First Century (MD) (Images of America)

Crisfield, once one of the largest communities in Maryland, is a city literally built on seafood: its foundation is comprised largely of oyster shells. Named in 1866 for Eastern Shore Railroad president John W. Crisfield, the city was formed from the Somerset County communities of Annemessex and Somers Cove and incorporated in 1872. Known then as “Dodge City of the East,” the railroad’s seafood-shipping opportunities gave the area new hope, and by the 1930s, it gained the nickname “Seafood Capital of the World.” Crisfield: The First Century highlights landmark events―the Great Fire of 1928, Hurricane Hazel in 1954, and the creation of the National Hard Crab Derby―and everyday life at school, church, and downtown. Crisfield’s rich history is captured in more than 200 images in this volume.
