On these pages, I have provided access to the historic maps of the Eastern Shore of Maryland that were done during the nation's centennial year (1876). These maps are available at the Wicomico County Public Library in Salisbury, Maryland. The maps are divided into the Election Districts of the period and show names of land owners as well as locations of old schools, churches, cemeteries, etc.  They are a valuable resource for the historian and genealogist.  Remember, these files are rather large so they may take a little while to download. For the sake of keeping them to a manageable size, I have scanned them at 200 dpi to try to keep them all under 150 KB. Let me know if having these maps available is helpful.
