Looking for small town Maryland? Look no further than Port Tobacco Village! With just 13 residents as of the 2010 Census, Port Tobacco was the smallest incorporated town in the state.
Contrast that to Port Tobacco’s history as a bustling port city. Established in 1727, the town’s location on the Port Tobacco River allowed access to the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Would you believe it was once the second-largest town in Maryland?
Today, Port Tobacco life centers on the historic courthouse, which is now a museum that tells the story of the Native Americans and colonists who lived there. The town is conveniently located to work and commerce in nearby La Plata and Waldorf, and provides an easy commute to Washington, D.C., all of Southern Maryland, and Northern Virginia.
