Living in Elkton, MD

While Elkton played a major role in two of America’s wars, it also has a significant role in transportation. James Rumsey, a resident of Cecil County, was the original inventor of the steamboat. Although he died before his product was manufactured, he was often seen along the Chesapeake Bay on one of his first steamboats, The Eagle. The boat served Elkton, which was then considered Head of Elk in 1815.

Also, one of the first railroads was built in 1831, linking Cecil County to Delaware. Created to protect trade routes, it connected industry to canals and ports. The vehicle was originally pulled by horses until 1833, when steam locomotives were introduced. Within 30 years, the railroad served as an efficient mode of transportation through the entire county.
