Carved out in 1742 from Somerset County, Worcester County is located in the easternmost part of the Maryland. With Snow Hill as its administrative center, the county has boundary with Accomac County to the south, Delaware to the north, Somerset and Wilcomico counties to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. It has a total area of 695 square miles. It is a small county with a 2015 estimated population of 51,540.
The history of modern Worcester County began in 1742 when it was carved out from Somerset County. Initially, the administrative center was in an area close to the converging point of Pocomoke River and Dividing Creek. But it was later moved to Snow Hill, which is closer to the center of the county. The earlier colonial divisions of hundreds was adhered to in the creation of this county. Hundreds occupying the south and north were joined together to form the new county. The areas that were integrated to form the then new county were Baltimore, Wicomico, Boquetenorton, Pocomoke and Mattapony.
The northern border of Worcester County, referred to as the Transpeninsular Line, was surveyed in 1751. Boundary conflicts had ensued between Lord Baltimore in the old Province of Maryland and the proprietor families of the Calverts, the Penns and Delaware. However, this did not end the territorial disputes, which continued until Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon came up with their Mason-Dixon Line after the colonial era.
The area known today as Worcester County was initially occupied by immigrants from Britain and Ireland, as well as slaves of mostly West African descent. However, the majority of the settlers in the county before the Civil War were not slaves. During the colonial era, the county was divided into a number of parishes belonging to the Church of England. Later, other denominations such as Methodist, Presbyterian and Quaker established their meeting and worship places in the county.
Its economy was initially driven by agriculture. The locals planted tobacco, but the sandy soil in the area did not produce the quality of tobacco found in other localities. This caused the locals to plant other crops, including wheat and corn. Some also took to livestock farming. Apart from agriculture, the locals also engaged in bog iron smelting for the making of pig iron at Furnace town, where a brick blast furnace was located. Other economic activities included logging, shipbuilding and production of roofing shingles. Worcester was also popular for seafood, especially shellfish, crabs, clams and oysters. The construction of the railroad and introduction of steam-powered boats in the city helped the locals to sell their seafood in outside markets.
During the initial decades of the 20th century, the city developed a strong truck farming and canning industry, which later suffered a decline during the half part of the century. But the poultry industry that sprang up sustained Worcester County economically during this period. However, it was hard-hit during the 20th century by two storms, the August 1933 hurricane and the 1962 Ash Wednesday Nor’easter. Both storms caused untold damages, destroying a large number of residential developments.
Worcester County was named for the wife of Sir John Somerset, Mary Arundel. The county has become popular today for its wildlife in Pocomoke River and Swamp and Assateague, and for its resort area established in 1875, Ocean City.
