895 Hudson Road is located in the Neck District of Dorchester County. According to Dorchester County’s Heritage Trail Guide, “Dorchester’s Neck District—where the county’s northwestern-most section juts into the confluence of the Choptank River and the Chesapeake Bay—is named for the narrow peninsulas or “necks” of land separated by creeks. European settlers cleared many of the forests for farming. Later, during the 19th and early 20th centuries, residents turned to boat building and harvesting fish, crabs, and oysters. With its open farm fields, tracts of loblolly pines, and hidden coves, the Neck District is noted for its beauty and seclusion.” Area attractions include historic churches, the Spocott Windmill and Colonial Village, Lewis General Store and an array of water oriented recreational facilities.
The home sits approximately 8 miles west of Cambridge. Major Dorchester County employers include Amick Farms, Cambridge International, Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Walmart and University of Maryland Shore Medical Center, according to the Maryland Department of Commerce. According to the Dorchester County Public Schools website, nearby schools are Sandy Hill Elementary, Mace’s Lane Middle and Cambridge-South Dorchester High.
