Aquasco / Eagle Harbor

In the southeastern corner of Prince George’s County is where you will find Aquasco and Eagle Harbor, Maryland along MD Route 381. Aquasco is home to the Patuxent River Park, an over 2,000-acre nature park owned by the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (MNCPP). This park offers trails and boardwalks through tidal marsh and forested habitats along the Patuxent River. There are over 15 historic sites identified by MNCPP in this area, most dating back to the colonial past and tobacco production between Swanson’s Creek and the Patuxent River.

Eagle Harbor is an incorporated town, first known as Trueman Point in the 8th century as the main tobacco port for local plantations. In 1925 the land was purchased by developer Walter L. Bean, who wanted to create a resort community for middle class African Americans. By 1929, the town incorporated as Eagle Harbor and held many summer cottages. Only 30 miles from Washington, D.C., this area continues to have an appeal for escaping the fast pace of the city as a retreat in warmer months.
