Originally charted by John Smith, this 300 acre portion of Smith Island makes up a signifcant part of the southwest portion of the barrier island. As the last remaining inhabited island in Maryland, both the state and federal governments are working together to preserve the rich social history and natural resources of the island. Approximately 280 residents are living on the island today. The island lies approximately 10 miles west of Crisfield across the Tangier Sound in the Chesapeake Bay. The land mass is made of three distinct areas Ewell, Tylerton, and Rhodes Point. The 300 acre offering has nearly two miles of sand beach to the western shoreline. These beaches are being reinforced by offshore breakwaters and shoreline erosion control projects facilited and installed by federal and state agencies to protect the long term sustainability of the island for local residents, fishing community, and ecotourism. Two upland areas are mapped on the islands where maritime forests have maintained themselves through years. The lands are not encumbered with a conservation easement yet local planning and zoning ordinances will likely preclude any use beyond recreational or ecotourism type activities. A small building lot is included on Tylerton of approximately .11 acres.
