July 28 , 2008



In the early 20th century, the communities previously recognized as Sandy Bottom, Enoch, Stingray Point, Ruark, Amburg, Stove Point, Horse Shoe Bend, Pace’s Neck, and Grinels became part of what is known today as Deltaville. Strategically located between two major rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, Deltaville has been center stage to many events that have shaped the nation. During the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, friend and foe visited its shores. Six decades later, both Union and Confederate blood was spilled on its ground. Throughout the early 20th century, Deltaville’s shores played a large part in local industry. Common occupations included wooden boatbuilding, freighting, oystering, crabbing, and fishing. By the end of the century, the community had grown into a waterfront resort and served as a playground for recreational boaters and visitors.
