Covering an expanse of land and water beginning in Sandy Point State Park on the Chesapeake Bay, then to the south of Anne Arundel County, and finally, Rose Haven on the Calvert County border, the Four Rivers Heritage Area is the heart of the region.
The area is named after the Rhode, Severn, South, and West Rivers and contains numerous remarkable landmarks, representing the State of Maryland’s rich legacy in culture, history, and nature.
