The town of Perryville is older than it appears. Its rich history dates back all the way to the early 1600s. Bordering the Susquehanna River, Perryville maintained a ferry that was often traveled by soldiers and locals alike. With a strong heritage in the revolutionary war, it seems fitting that the town was home to Commodore John Rodgers, father of the American Navy. The historic Rodgers Tavern can still be seen today and continues to undergo restoration as it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Tavern has been visited by the likes of George Washington, Jefferson, and Madison. If you're a history buff, you'll enjoy the pride of heritage you'll find in Perryville.
More recently, Perryville has been the home to an outlet center and a casino. The town also boasts a beautiful waterfront park. One of the biggest draws, however, may be its ever expanding real estate market at rock bottom prices compared to its Harford County counterparts.
