Dunkirk History

The Dunkirk area was first explored by John Smith, the legendary English colonist who had a hand in founding several early colonial settlements. First settled in the middle of the 17th century, the area remained rural for most of its history. Indeed, tobacco and dairy products were the area’s primary economic engines until well after the Revolutionary War. The growth of nearby cities like Baltimore and Washington, D.C. did help transform Dunkirk and the rest of northern Calvert County into a “back office” service center by the mid-20th century. These days, it’s an exurban bedroom community as well as a popular vacation destination.


Dunkirk is located on the northern edge of the Calvert Peninsula. On the west, the immediate area is bounded by the upper reaches of the Patuxent River’s estuary. To the east and north, the broad Chesapeake Bay stretches toward Baltimore and Wilmington, Delaware. Dunkirk itself consists of tidy bungalow-style houses and a ring of larger suburban developments. Thanks to the proximity of nearby shopping centers, there’s relatively little commercial activity within the town’s traditionally defined limits. Beyond its borders, a pastoral landscape of fields and forest stretches in all directions. Several noteworthy marshes can be found in the region as well.

Population and Demographics

Dunkirk’s year-round population comes in at between 2,500 and 2,600. Although the town remains small and tight-knit, it’s increasingly gaining favor as a commuter community for big cities like Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Many young professionals and business owners have moved to the area in search of larger yards, less crowded schools and more affordable homes. Dunkirk is also home to a sizable community of retirees and vacation-home owners. Among locals, farming, crabbing and light industry remain the most popular economic activities.

Things to Do in Dunkirk, Maryland

Dunkirk’s history and natural beauty make it a popular destination. To the west, the Merkle Wildlife Management Area surrounds the Patuxent River’s basin and shelters various species of birds, reptiles and mammals. For golf enthusiasts, tony clubs like Marlborough Golf Club and Old South Country Club deliver impressive experiences in refined settings. To the south, the towering promontories of Calvert Cliffs State Park offer tailor-made subjects for wilderness photography. Meanwhile, Kings Landing Park is popular with boaters and amateur sports enthusiasts

Climate and Weather

Dunkirk’s subtropical climate is characterized by four easily identifiable seasons and a wide variety of weather conditions. Due to the town’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean’s “storm track,” tropical storms do occasionally threaten the area with coastal storm surges, heavy rains and powerful winds. Fortunately, such events have been rare in recent years. During the winter, cold rains and biting winds can make outdoor activity challenging for locals. Likewise, Dunkirk’s summers often bring stifling heat and humidity. Fortunately, year-round rainfall breaks up stagnant weather patterns and keeps conditions comfortable.
