Real Estate in Port Deposit
As Port Deposit is a historic town, many of the homes in the area are older properties. Uniquely charming, these homes offer homebuyers something a little bit different. In regards to architectural design, Port Deposit historic homes are built in a few traditional styles, but mostly cottage.
There are, however, some very exclusive Victorian and Colonial properties, and these typically go for higher price points. Found in the center of the town, on Main Street, residents can easily get around to all of the area's amenities. Some homes even have desirable waterfront views. Homes such as these generally go for higher prices, but that is to be expected.
When it comes to home interiors, some homes (even the historic properties) require a bit of renovation or upgrades. If you're searching for an incredible project, revitalizing a home in Port Deposit might just be for you! Of course, the town has upgraded homes, too.
Although the real estate market is mainly single-family homes, there are also small condo and townhome complexes within the town. These properties are built in a traditional style to match the historic architecture of the town, but their construction dates typically sit around the 90s and early-2000s. Port Deposit has even a few waterfront condos that offer spectacular views of the river.
Port Deposit History
While history of this area dates back to the early-1600s, the bridge to cross the Susquehanna River (to what is now Port Deposit) would not be built until the early 19th century. The bridge in question was constructed by the Port Deposit Bridge Company, and the town was officially incorporated in 1824.
The town's main industries were granite mining, as well as fabrication and construction. Now it is a quiet, peaceful riverfront town. The entirety of Port Deposit is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as four other sites.
