Welcome to Wicomico County

Rich in history from the American Revolution forward, the County was founded in 1867 and has various businesses ranging from small business to large corporations. Home of famous Frank Perdue, the County is the founding place for the nationally known Perdue Farms, famous for its poultry products.

Our proximity to ocean resorts, our own Minor League Baseball team and major universities make us an attractive haven to attend school, raise a family and retire!

Wicomico is more than beach, higher education, Shorebirds and chicken, it’s also rich in agriculture; namely known for watermelons and corn, a whole host of vegetables are grown here. And who could forget one of our hallmarks – Old Bay steamed blue crabs – a time-honored tradition on the Shore!

At the end of the day, Wicomico is about our people – everyone who lives and works here to make our county a wonderful location to live, work and play!

This year is a very special one because we’re celebrating our 150th Anniversary!
