Heritage Day

West Wicomico Heritage Bike Tour

For many years, riders from all over the region have enjoyed the West Wicomico Heritage Bike Tour and helped to preserve our Eastern Shore heritage. This bike tour of western Wicomico County takes riders across 300 years of Maryland history. Begin your day at Pemberton Historical Park, named for Pemberton Hall, a plantation home built in 1741 by Isaac Handy, one of the founders of the city of Salisbury. From there, explore such towns as the scenic riverfront community of Whitehaven, with the United Methodist Church (1891-1892), Whitehaven Hotel (1810) and Ferry (1685). Discover the historic communities of Hebron and Quantico too, as well as Bivalve's beautiful Cedar Hill Marina.
