The many lives of Chesapeake Beach, originated from the idea that Chesapeake Beach was a wonderful destination, and loaded with potential. The Chesapeake Beach Railway was the impetus and driving factor that put the town on the map, which was incorporated in 1894. Today, while the railway no longer runs, the station remains central to the town, quietly standing strong amidst change, observing, and adapting.
