Chestertown, MD Overview

Home of George Washington College, Chestertown is the center of amenities and the hub of life in Kent County.  Located on the banks of the Chester River, Chestertown began as a prosperous shipbuilding, trade and government center during the colonial movement and still maintains the state’s oldest records.  The popular autumn Candlelight Walking Tour offers a glimpse into many of the spectacular homes built by wealthy merchants of the 18th and 19th centuries.  Quaint red-brick sidewalks and broad, shaded streets form an idyllic backdrop for specialty shops, galleries and eateries.  On cool summer evenings, residents can relax to the strains of concerts held around the antique fountain in the town square.  Lovely homes, a stimulating college-town atmosphere and community pride make Chestertown the ideal place to call home.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
