Solomons became an official town in 1870 when its first post office opened. In the following years, it became the industrial center of Calvert County. Shipbuilding and seafood harvesting created the economic base of the town.
While the 1920's and 30's saw a decrease in prosperity, the establishment of the Navy in the area during WWII brought about revitalization and a population surge (a jump of 2,000 in only 3 years). Although only one base in the surrounding area still operates (across the river in St. Mary's County), the naval presence is still evident.
Visitors to Solomon have a variety of restaurants, bars (the Tiki Bar is a county summer favorite), and shops. Historical buildings include churches and homes. The Calvert Marine Museum is considered a gem.
