1. Centreville Wharf Marker
Inscription. Site of Marlborough, a port town laid out in the early 18th century with the creation of Queen Anne’s County. The wharf was a trade center, with a tobacco inspection warehouse administered by William Hopper. The “Captain’s Houses” were constructed ca. 1880 by Captain John C. Ozmon to quarter workers of his schooners, warehouses and store. Architecturally unique in the region they recall the importance of Centreville Wharf when water was the main mode of transport in the Chesapeake.
