Tred Avon Yacht Club – N. Morris St. & The Strand. founded in 1931, the present building, completed in 1990, replaced the original structure.
Oxford-Bellevue Ferry – N.Morris St. & the Strand. Started in 1683, this is believed to be the oldest privately owned ferry in the United States. Its first keeper was Richard Royston, whom the Talbot County Court ‘pitcht upon’ to run a ferry at an unusual subsidy of 2,500 pounds of tobacco. Service has been continuous since 1836, with power supplied by sail, sculling, rowing, steam, and modern diesel engine. Many now take the ride between Oxford and Bellvue for the scenic beauty.
