At its opening in 1964, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel was named one of the “Five Wonders of the Modern World” by Reader’s Digest magazine. It was the culmination of a concerted, decade-long push by a group of men, led by Lucius J. Kellam Jr., an Eastern Shore native and businessman who dreamed of opening up the remote Eastern Shore to the bustling Virginia mainland. This $200-million, 17.6-mile-long series of bridges, tunnels, islands, and trestle in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay—long dismissed as impractical and even impossible—won the attention of the world at its opening. It also brought an abrupt end to the ferry service that was long a cornerstone of the New York-to-Florida “Ocean Highway,” shuttling millions of cars between the Eastern Shore and Hampton Roads.

Though it was the second-to-last Maryland county to be formed, Wicomico County has a long, rich history celebrated through annual festivals, heritage tourism, and many local museums and preservation organizations. Images of America: Wicomico County is yet another way for residents to commemorate this area whose name sprung from Native American words meaning a place where houses are built. Heavily influenced by local waterways, including the Wicomico and Nanticoke Rivers and the Tangier Sound, the heritage of this Delmarva region is preserved in the county seat, Salisbury, and other unincorporated municipalities, including Fruitland, Hebron, and Whitehaven, and the numerous structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wicomico County has grown over the last 20 years from about 60,000 people to about 100,000 people and continues to prosper.
