Bainbridge - the destination where it all comes together

Located right off I-95 in the heart of the East Coast, between Baltimore and Philadelphia, elevated on a bluff approximately 200 feet above historic Port Deposit overlooking the breathtaking Susquehanna River. The innovative planning and central Mid-Atlantic location of Bainbridge makes this community the perfect destination for business and living. The master plan for Bainbridge provides ample flexibility for commercial and industrial opportunities. Bainbridge blends the charm of historic Main Street in Port Deposit with the modern development on Bainbridge proper.
