Kirby's Wharf
       Kirby's Wharf was located on the Choptank River about 4 miles south of town on the farm of W.A. Kirby. It served as a steamboat landing from 1884 until 1922. The wharf had to be 800 feet long to reach deep water. On Oct. 22, 1884 the Trappe Enterprise reported that "The new steamer Tred Avon, of the Choptank company, made her first trip down on Wednesday morning. While going to Kirby's wharf, the signal was given to stop, but the engines hung and having considerable headway, she ran into the wharf. Two oak sills about 12 inches square were cut into and the floor torn up several feet. It is said that the boat was not damaged in the least." Photo probably taken about circa 1910?
