Kent County, organized in 1650, is one of the Eastern Shore counties, and is bounded on the east by the State of Delaware. It is a peninsula lying between Sassafras River, north, Chesapeake Bay, west, and Chester River, south and southeast. The surface is level, though not low, and rolls sufficiently to be well drained by the many creeks flowing into its bordering rivers and the bay. The area is 281 square miles, of which about three-fourths, or 138,947 acres was under cultivation in 1900. The county seat is Chestertown, with a population of 3,008 in 1900. The average magnetic declination in the county in 1900 was 5° 40' west. The annual rainfall commonly ranges between 40 and 50 inches, and the mean annual temperature between 50° and 55°.
