Historic Preservation: The Wicomico Hotel


Davis Strategic Development is currently working on a historical preservation project for One Plaza East located in Downtown Salisbury, and we would love your help!

Built in the early 1920s, this historic 7-story building was once the Eastern Shore’s first-ever hotel, bringing economic prosperity and elevated tourism to Downtown Salisbury. We are going to showcase the rich history of this building through a unique collage/ art display, which will display the construction and completion of the building throughout the past ten decades! We have already received hundreds of original documents and artifacts, which were graciously donated to us by the citizens of Salisbury. We are preserving these documents and then donating almost all of them to Salisbury University’s NABB Center, where they will remain a part of Salisbury’s history forever and can be appreciated for generations to come!

If you have original documents, photos, or artifacts of One Plaza East and would like to join us in our effort to conserve history, please stop by our office, located on 318 W Carroll St, Salisbury, MD 21801. Thank you for your help with this massive preservation project!”
