About CrisfieldCrisfield is on an inlet of Tangier Sound, a part of Chesapeake Bay set off and protected by islands. The townspeople lived in relative isolation until 1867, when a railroad was extended to the harbor by John Woodland Crisfield. Said to be built almost entirely on oyster shells, the town has a number of oyster houses at its piers, where visitors can sample the fresh delicacy in season.
Each July the J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is held at the Somers Cove Marina.
Ferries provide daily service to Tangier Island, Va., and Smith Island.
