In Rock Hall, all roads lead to water. And all water eventually flows to one of the world's greatest estuaries, the Chesapeake Bay. With the advantage of easy access to the Chester River, Gray's Inn Creek and Swan Creek as well as a direct link to the Bay from Rock Hall Harbor, water-related occupations shaped Rock Hall's economic and cultural development from the very beginning…and continue to do so today. In the early years, the Bay served as a commercial link with more populated areas.
