~ report submitted by David Weber, Maryland, East Coast United States Notes:
Tolchester Beach was a popular beach resort established in 1877, located on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Kent County, Maryland. Thanks David Schneider (editor)
It was located just north of Rock Hall, Maryland, and closed in 1962.
Since as many as 20,000 people visited Tolchester Beach on a given weekend during its heyday, an accumulation of all kinds of glass would be expected.
The beach area also fits the profile of a good sea glass beach, since the community was on a bluff behind the beaches.
See the profile of factors to identify a good sea glass beach.
