The Wharves at Choptank Crossing

This site recreates theGolden Age of Steam on the Choptank River
Here you'll find the restored Joppa steamboat wharf and terminal from the 1800s, a visitor center and museum, and a Chesapeake Bay skipjack. This area was once a thriving port, forty miles inland from the mouth of the Choptank.
These attractions are part of the Choptank River Heritage Center. The Center's larger purpose is to tell the stories of the Eastern Shore's longest river and the history of the land and its people.
