Eastport in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Maritime Tradition Lives On
In the 1970s, the demand for waterfront property threatened to replace the working boatyards and marine services with high-rise condos. In response, the City of Annapolis passed a zoning law to protect and preserve maritime-related activities and businesses. Thanks to this law, Eastport continues to serve sailors and boaters just as it always has.
