Chestertown is in Maryland's Eastern Shore. Chestertown, the county seat of Kent, the Eastern Shore of Marylands's oldest county, was founded in 1706 and served as a port of entry during colonial times. A town rich in history, its attractions include a blend of past and present. Its brick sidewalks and attractive antique stores, restaurants and inns beckon visitors and residents alike to wander through the historic district and enjoy homes and places with architecture ranging from the Georgian mansions of wealthy colonial merchants to the elaborate style of the Victorian era. Chestertown is situated on a scenic peninsula where the Chester and Sassafras rivers meander into Chesapeake Bay.
