Linchester Mill borders Hunting Creek, a tributary of the Choptank River flowing into the Chesapeake Bay. This historic site provided a crossing for Native Americans who traveled the Choptank Indian Trail; colonists en route to the first Choptank River ferry located at Hog Island; the first "salt raid" of the American Revolution; the first trans-Peninsula railroad to Ocean City; and for customers buying moonshine at Tom's Still.


A mill has been here for 250 years. The braced-frame mill was built in 1827. It had two structural additions. The first occurred in 1890 to accommodate new equipment. The second occurred in 1917 when the "Fitz" waterwheel replaced the large wooden waterwheel.
