Historical Note

Smith Island has one of the oldest contiguous fishing communities in the Eastern Shore. Despite the decline in the fishing industry and environmental regulation, many Smith Island natives continue the trade. Having rarely migrated outward from the Island until the 20th century, many natives still retain a colonial Maryland accent.
