How old is Upper Marlboro?

Named after the first Duke of Marlborough, Upper Marlboro was settled in 1695. At that time, the Church of England was established as the state church of Maryland. In 1814, Upper Marlboro was taken over by British forces during their campaign leading up to the Battle of Bladensburg and the burning of Washington D.C.

During the eighteenth century, it was a tobacco marketing town. Draft boats would carry tobacco from Western Branch to the Patuxent River out to the Chesapeake Bay and onto boats anchored in the Atlantic Ocean. In the late 1800s Upper Marlboro changed from a booming tobacco trading town to a quieter farming community. This happened in part due to the years of erosion and sediment build up in the Western Branch making it impossible for boat travel.

Single images can be added right in the rich text area, or you can add an image gallery. Single videos can also be added in the rich text area, but we built a field just for a video url that you can use to add a video as well. Which option would you use when? If you have both an image gallery and a video you wish to feature, we'd recommend adding the video URL to the optional video field, this creates a tab structure so that site visitors can easily switch between the video and the image gallery. You can play with various options here to see how this works.
