East New Market




During this era there was only one newspaper in Maryland.  The "Maryland Gazette" began publication in 1727 and was based Annapolis.  It is possible that New Market was mentioned after it began to appear on maps in 1776.  A fairly complete set of the "Maryland Gazette" newspaper images are online at the Archives of Maryland Online
