1. Roaring Point Park Marker
Inscription. Roaring Point Park provides a wonderful view of the lower Nanticoke River, as it widens to reach Tangier Sound and the Chesapeake Bay. The Nanticoke River was for centuries an important native American homeland. After Jamestown was founded, the Nanticoke was one of the first rivers explored by the English on the Chesapeake Bay, and it has one of the longest histories of European settlement in America. The Nanticoke River has supported ship building, water transport, commercial fishing, and recreation, and it is still one of the most untouched and beautiful rivers in the country.

Acquisition of Roaring Point Park was funded by Maryland Program Open Space. The park is owned and maintained by Wicomico County.
