Welcome Message

As Mayor of Pocomoke City I would like to bid you a warm welcome to The Friendliest Town on the Eastern Shore!

We are a family oriented city of just under 5000 people located on the coast of Maryland on the Delmarva Peninsula. Our city rests against one of our greatest attributes, the banks of the Pocomoke River which is one of the top scenic rivers in America. Our town was founded in the early 1700’s and was incorporated in 1878.

Pocomoke is proud of the fact that we are a sub-center for commerce on the lower shore as we are home to a growing industrial park with great diversity currently playing host to defense contractors, aerospace engineering and plastics fabrication. We are also strategically located very near The Wallops Island Flight Facility in Wallops Island Virginia.

We are an ideal community in which to raise a family. Children can easily walk or ride their bikes from one of our many neighborhoods to our award winning Blue Ribbon Schools, boasting numerous state championship sports and fabulous after-school programs. In 2009 we were recognized for the second time as one of only 15 finalists in the nation-wide All-America Cities competition, a distinction that is another source of great pride for our city.
