Poised on a hill overlooking the Choptank River, Denton has a picturesque Courthouse Green surrounded by colonial revival style homes.
Denton hosts a variety of events throughout the year. The annual Caroline Summerfest in August is a free, family oriented event featuring live entertainment, fine arts and crafts, strolling entertainment, free KidzArt activities, river cruises on the Choptank River, food, vendors, fireworks, hot-rods, and antique car displays.
In Denton, the history buff will find the old county courthouse, the Museum of Rural Life and two sites that are on the National Register of Historic Places, a Quaker meeting house and school house.
As Denton is crisscrossed with rivers and one of the best ways to get into the rhythm of the community is to stop by the Choptank River Heritage Center and Joppa Steamboat Wharf in West Denton to rent a canoe or kayak or pick up a copy of the "Choptank & Tuckahoe River Guide" and take advantage of 15 self-guided heritage paddle trips.
Denton is both a designated Main Street Maryland
community as well as Arts & Entertainment
