Stevensville Maryland which is located on Kent Island was originally inhabited by Native Americans who were members of the Matapeake Tribe. During the 16th and 17th centuries the area was first seen by explorers such as Captain John Smith. In August of 1631 the island became an English settlement. Kent Island was originally a farming community. Later, many of the islands inhabitants worked as waterman. As the seafood industry grew the waterman capitalized on the abundant supply of blue crabs, rockfish and oysters. The area is rich in history and to this day we still have farmers and watermen working the land and waters around the island.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge was completed in 1952 allowing for ease in travel between the Western and Eastern Shores. In 1973 an additional span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was added to accommodate the ever growing travel between the shores. This allowed Stevensville to become a viable option for those wishing to enjoy a water oriented lifestyle while still being able to commute to Washington, DC, Baltimore and surrounding areas for work.
Today, Stevensville and Kent Island are thriving communities. We have wonderful parks, walking trails, restaurants and shopping. Here you will find a diverse group of people and housing. We have everything from condos to townhomes to modest single family homes to large waterfront estates. You will find a home to fit every budget and lifestyle. It is a wonderful place to live for easy commuting to the Western Shore while being able to enjoy all of the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay.
