Moving to Maryland
Maryland is seafood, scenic beauty, and American history. Our national anthem, written by Francis Scott Key, a Maryland lawyer, is believed to have been penned while Key watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor on September 14, 1814. The state is steeped in tradition, lore, and historic sites.
Maryland became the 7th state in 1788. With a population of 5.2 million, Maryland is the 19th most populated state, and ranks 42nd in size. Maryland is a prominent producer and processor of seafood and a national leader in the production of blue crabs and soft clams. Sixteen of the 23 counties border on tidal water. The total shoreline, including islands, is 4,431 miles. Maryland has 46 state parks, 15 state-owned lakes and ponds open to public fishing; 9 state forests, 15 state parks open to public hunting; 36 wildlife management areas open to public hunting, and 6 natural environment areas.
