About Caroline County Maryland
Located on the Chesapeake Peninsula between the Choptank River and the Mason-Dixon Line, Caroline is the perfect destination for heritage enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers. Here you’ll find a rural and relaxing lifestyle where you can ease all the way back to the 1700’s, retrace Underground Railroad pathways, and revisit captivating stories of the Civil War. Enjoy Caroline’s wealth of unique heritage experiences, nature preserves, winding waterways, gently curving countryside, small town charm and one-of-a-kind group excursions.
Named after wealthy landowner, Dr. G.W. Goldsborough, the town’s earliest industry was beaver pelt trading with Native Americans. This was a lucrative business since four major Indian paths on the Chesapeake Peninsula converged here. With Oak hickory and Oak gum forests, abundant grain fields, spawning fish, edible plants, freshwater streams and fur-bearing animals Goldsboro grew into an important crossroads town. Today it remains one of the small charming villages that dot Caroline County’s scenic landscape.

Underground Railroad Exhibit at Museum of Rural Life
The Caroline Office of Tourism, in partnership with the Caroline County Historical Society, is pleased to announce that a new Underground Railroad exhibit is now on display at the Museum of Rural Life in historic Denton, Maryland. “Flee! Stories of Flight from Maryland” joins the current exhibit featuring the inspiring works of artist Mark Priest as the 2013 Harriet Tubman Centennial Celebration continues.
“Flee! Stories of Flight from Maryland,” is a traveling exhibit that features five panels titled Flee, Slaveholders, Fugitives, Accomplices and Towards Freedom. The exhibit, which was created in 2010, tells the story of the quest for freedom.
The Museum of Rural Life is also currently exhibiting the works of renowned artist Mark Priest. Priest has spent more than a decade tracing the routes of the Underground Railroad and researching the life of Harriet Tubman. As part of the Tubman Centennial in 2013, his moving series of drawings and paintings will be on display at the museum -not far from where Tubman likely passed through on her escapes to freedom – through August 2013.
The Museum of Rural Life, located at 16 N. 2nd Street in Denton, Maryland, is open Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and Sundays from noon – 4:00 p.m. For more information on the current exhibits or visiting the Museum of Rural Life, please call 410-479-0655.
