Welcome to Wicomico County, Maryland
George Kaloroumakis - Director of Corrections
Wicomico County, one of "America's 100 Best Communities for Young People," is on Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore and is less than a three hour drive from Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Norfolk. Atlantic Ocean resorts and Chesapeake Bay recreational attractions are only 30 miles away. Coming and going is quick and easy since Wicomico County is served by the only FAA-Certified Air Carrier airport on the Delmarva Peninsula.
Created from neighboring Somerset and Worcester Counties in 1867, "Wicomico" is derived from the American Indian words "wicko" and "mekee" meaning "a place where houses are built." Wicomico's County Seat, Salisbury, dates back to 1732. The area is rich in colonial and post-revolutionary American history.
While Salisbury and environs are recognized as an urban area, agriculture reigns as Wicomico County's main industry in the state’s top agricultural county. Nationally-known Perdue Farms has its headquarters here.
Wicomico has a well-earned reputation as an ideal place to live, work, play and raise children. It is also a destination point for visitors as attested by the traffic at the Welcome Center which is one of the busiest in Maryland.
Please browse around the web site and see why Wicomico County is a special place.
