History of Chaptico Maryland
History of Chaptico Maryland The name Chaptico is not one you hear often; it is believed to be Algonquian for “big broad river it is.” It is said to be a phrase derived from the Chaptico Tribe of natives that lived in the area. The tribe was known for its friendly people. The town became a large shipping point on the Wicomico River until earth shifted and caused the river to silt up in the 1800s. It is said that the damage was caused by the British in 1813 as a result of events during the War of 1812 when they pretty much demolished the town as it stood at the time.
Chaptico is full of many impressive properties from its early days that still stand today and have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of them include the Bachelor’s Hope, Deep Falls, and Christ Episcopal Church.
