Town Office Location
105 Backlanding Road

Preston's population is approximately 690. We have a peaceful, thriving community with a hearty mix of descendants of original and early settlers whose forbearers handed down high ideals and traditional values of family, home, church, and Country. These ideals and traditions are evident today. Added to this mix are newly arrived young couples who wish to raise their children in such a community, as well as retirees seeking the same wholesome lifestyle.

While some of our citizens work outside our community, it would not be quite truthful to label Preston as a bedroom community since a large number of residents own and operate local businesses, farms, raise poultry and/or livestock, or are watermen.

Old mansions and early-built homes, moved from old farmsteads during Preston's early days, stand side-by-side in attractive harmony with newer modern communities on Apple Lane and Tidewater Farms.

Come and visit us soon and enjoy little league games at the Preston's ball parks behind the school or visit us the end of May or 1st week of June during the annual Preston Carnival hosted by the Preston Volunteer Fire Company and the Preston Lion's Club. You can breakfast the first Sunday of the month at the fire house, attend our Peach Festival held every year on the 2nd Saturday in August. The Preston Historical Society hosts a Rummage Sale in April. Our local churches host dinners from time to time.

Take time to visit the historic Linchester Mill just south of town where they host events and tours. Call Mickey McCrea at 410-310-9202 for events, Charles Andrew at 443-786-2549 for tours information, Debbie Shalaby at 443-786-8173 for the Friends of Linchester Open-Air Markets on Saturdays. You can also travel to the Choptank River, not five miles from here, where you can either launch your boat from the marina (Town Hall offers the Boat Ramp Permits) or fish and crab from the wharf.
