The town of Chesapeake City was originally named by Bohemian colonist Augustine Herman, the Village of Bohemia (or Bohemia Manor), but the name was changed in 1839 when the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal was built. Today, the town contains numerous Historic homes from that era that have been converted into bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and the local historical museum.
The town was separated into north and south sections when the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal was built through the middle of the town. The two were connected by a drawbridge until 1942, when it was destroyed by a freighter that struck it. The current bridge opened in 1949.
The new bridge had to be tall enough to allow supertankers to pass beneath it, resulting in a structure so high and long that cars no longer went into the city to cross the canal. Business declined for decades thereafter. Now it is a destination of daytrippers from Pennsylvania and New Jersey as well as those who own Eastern Shore Vacation Homes.
