Settlement in Maryland spread throughout the Chesapeake Bay region in the 17th century, then followed the Potomac or drifted westward from Pennsylvania in the 18th century. Take an "on-line tour" of a sample of markers commemorating the people, places and events of the settlement period, chosen to reflect geographic range and variety. Use the database search on the "Explore the Historical Markers" page to locate other similar markers and to explore this theme in more depth.
