St. Michaels is “a treasure on Maryland’s fabled Eastern Shore, about halfway between the Susquehanna source and the Atlantic mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. This vintage harbor port, whose origins date from the birth of the colonies, is nestled on the beautiful Miles River,” according to

“For history buffs, the town of St Michaels dates back to the mid-1600s when it served as a trading post for area tobacco farmers and trappers. In 1677 the Christ Episcopal Church of St Michael Archangel parish was founded in present day St. Michaels. In 1778 a British land agent, James Braddock, purchased 20 acres and deeded 58 lots. This created St. Mary’s Square, the historic center of St. Michaels. To this day, this charming seaside resort town reflects its colonial past, as many of the area’s homes date from the late 1700s to the late 1800s. 

During the War of 1812, St. Michaels gained its name as “the town that fooled the British”. The residents of St. Michaels, having been forewarned that British barges were positioned on the waters to attack with cannon fire, hoisted lanterns into the trees above the city. This first successful “blackout” fooled the British into overshooting the town’s houses and shipyards. Only one house, forever since known as Cannonball House, was struck.”

The town is a collage of handsome churches, manicured colonial, federal and Victorian homes, historic maritime heritage, diverse artistic talents and pleasant southern culture. It is also the proud cradle and repository of our maritime history at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

Most TV and movies show burglaries happening at night but in fact, most burglaries take place in the afternoon. So, while you’re out enjoying downtown shopping and dining, boating and fishing, Winefest, or Midnight Madness, bad guys might be helping themselves.

Social media is so tempting, but burglars have been known to monitor social for targets. Be careful about posting that you’re out of town or gone for long periods of time.

What our St. Michaels, MD Customers are Saying

“Totally satisfied with the system and customer service. Glad we chose Alarm Engineering!” -Mary Jane at St. Michaels Pet Supplies, St. Michaels, MD

Jodi did an awesome job at explaining all options that Alarm Engineering offers and what a selection! She made sure she was available for any additional question and for the beginning of the installation. I apologize for not remembering the names of the men, but do remember one of them had a 4 month old German Shepard pup! They were both super in regards to the installation and instructions on how to operate the system. The system works great. I’m confident that if anything ever happened, they would be on it promptly. It’s also nice talking to a real person who knows you and the area. -Kat in St. Michaels, MD on Google
