First settled as part of Charles County, in around 1650 the county was established by an Order in Council in 1654 and renamed Patuxent County. However, in 1658 the county was again renamed Calvert County. It is the third oldest county in Maryland, after St. Mary’s County, Kent County and Anne Arundel County. The county’s earliest recorded settlers were the Piscataway Indians who were corn and tobacco farmers.

Calvert County once made up primarily of farms and tobacco fields has become a fast-growing neighbor of Washington DC. The popular weekend resort towns of SolomonsChesapeake Beach, and North Beach are notable for their beaches, marinas, and water sports.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Calvert County has a total area of 345 square miles of which 213 square miles is land and 132 square miles or 38% is water. It is the smallest county in Maryland by land area and third-smallest by total area. It has a population estimated at 90,484, with 30,923 households and a median household income of $95,477.

In 2013 homeownership rate was estimated at 81.4%. Home prices have nearly quadrupled in the past decade, with many four-bedroom homes in the northern half of the county averaging over $1,000,000.

Calvert has a mix of incorporated townships, Chesapeake Beach & North Beach, and census-designated places and towns, Broomes Island, Calvert Beach, Chesapeake Ranch Estates, Drum Point, Dunkirk, Huntingtown, Long Beach, Lusby, Owings, Prince Frederick (county seat), St. Leonard, and Solomons.

The county lies in the humid subtropical climate zone, with hot, humid summers and mild to chilly winters with plentiful precipitation year-round. Its proximity to the Chesapeake Bay has a moderating effect on temperatures compared with locales further inland.

Calvert County is served by Calvert County Public Schools. The county’s education system consists of 13 elementary schools, six middle schools, four high schools, vocational education center, and a variety of other facilities.

Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, is a not-for-profit, community-owned hospital with over 200 active and consulting physicians on staff representing over 40 medical specialties. There are also branch offices located in Dunkirk, Solomons, and North Beach, providing residents with ready access to primary care, specialists, and diagnostic services.

Other services include a state-of-the-art emergency department, an infusion therapy center and community cancer program, a psychiatric unit with adolescent services and emergency evaluations, full outpatient services with endoscopy suite, a pain management center, a sleep disorders center, and radiology.
