About Cambridge, MD

Cambridge is located on the Chesapeake Peninsula on Maryland's eastern shore. With metropolitan areas Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis, Philadelphia, Norfolk and Richmond close by, Cambridge is a prime location for culture and business. The city's history dates back to 1684, when it was an English colony, and later Harriet Tubman and sharpshooter Annie Oakley lived here.
