On August 2, 1608, the Virginia Company explorers went as far north as the falls above current-day Havre de Grace near Port Deposit on the Susquehanna River. Captain John Smith and his group of explorers spent several days exploring the northern reaches of the Chesapeake Bay, and met with a group of Susquehannock Indians who had traveled south from Pennsylvania to meet them.

Today, citizens on both sides of the Susquehanna River appreciate their region's unique maritime history. The Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway links the area's natural, historic, and cultural resources.

Visit the buoy from the area's many marinas. The buoy is visible from locations along the Harford and Cecil County shorelines, including Havre de Grace's Concord Point and Promenade area.

Be sure to check the weather forecast before you head out.
