Serving the Eastern Shore since 1897, The Dorchester Banner, which publishes twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays, dominates the market in Maryland's largest county, Dorchester County.
The city of Cambridge is the center of Dorchester County's population as well as its business and cultural activity. Cambridge is a deepwater port, offering direct access to ocean-going ships and coastal freighters. Almost half the work force engages in manufacturing. The remainder are primarily employed in retail, agriculture and seafood harvesting and processing.
Nestled in the corner of the Delmarva Peninsula where the Choptank River opens to the Chesapeake Bay, Cambridge is within easy reach of Baltimore (86 miles), Philadelphia (185 miles), Washington, D.C. (97 miles) and Ocean City, MD (69 miles).
