HISTORY

 

After humble beginnings as a corn field, the Marina emerged in the early 1960s as “Ranch Club Marina #1”. Over the course of the next 30 years piers were added, swimming pool built and many other improvements made, resulting in today what many consider to be one of the finest marina facilities on the Chesapeake Bay.

Although the first settlements in the Patuxent Region were the tobacco farms of the 17th and 18th centuries, Solomons itself came into prominence after the civil war. It began as a fishing community famous for its oysters and shipyards. By 1892, Solomons was Calvert County’s most important commercial center. The town was firmly planted on the map during World War II when it housed an amphibious training base through which thousands of troops passed on their way to the beaches of Normandy.

During the latter part of this century, the Island has become more and more focused on the recreational side of boating with marinas, restaurants, and charter boats flourishing.
