Easton's Neighbors


Easton
is located in Talbot County, Maryland. Easton sits at the top of a triangle. The other two points of the triangle are Oxford and St. Michaels. Each side of the triangle is approximately 10 miles long. You can easily travel between Easton and Oxford or Easton and St. Michaels by car or bicycle. You may wish to visit Oxford on the way to St. Michaels by using the Oxford-Bellevue Ferry which crosses the beautiful Tred Avon River. The farthest end of Talbot County is Tilghman Island which is located approximately 14 miles beyond St. Michaels. Tilghman Island is the home of the last remaining skipjack fleet still fishing the local waterways.

Wye Mills
-- The picturesque village of Wye Mills, former site of the 400 year-old Wye Oak, the eighteenth century Old Wye Church, (c.1721), and the nineteenth century United Methodist Church, is the home of the Wye Grist Mill.

The Wye Grist Mill, (c.1682) is the oldest frame grist mill on the Eastern Shore and the oldest industrial, commercial structure in continuous use in the state. Discover the long and colorful past of this National Register Landmark. Watch the waterwheel turn the heavy stones to grind the grain as millers explain the milling process. Explore exhibits that feature 300 years of grinding technology. Enjoy the rural beauty of this small village and its historic sites. Located just off Route 50 On Route 662, (900 Wye Mills Road, Wye Mills, 21679). Today's mill is much as it was in the early nineteenth century, with a big steel water wheel, a pair of French buhr stones, and a maze of functioning wooden chutes and elevators. The sense of the past is strong here. A curator is on hand to explain the mill's history, and on alternate Saturdays, (1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month May-October), volunteers assist in bringing the mill back to life - when the mill is operating the floor boards rumble, the sound of machinery fills your ears, and the aroma of freshly ground grain permeates the air. Open from mid-May through mid-November. Mill hours are Mon-Sat 10 AM - 4 PM; Sun 1-4 PM.  Group tours are available by appointment 410-827-3850.. E-mail: oldwyemill@atlanticbbn.net
