    Holland Island is a rapidly deteriorating island in the Chesapeake Bay , in Dorchester County, Maryland, United States. Once inhabited by watermen and farmers it is now abandoned. This was the last house in Holland Island in 2010 when the eventual decline of the island sunk it into the bay. Located in the Holland Strait, between Bloodsworth Island and Smith Island.

    Chesapeake Bay island vanishes. Holland Island was once five miles long. It was home to a fishing community of 250 to 360 people, with more than 60 homes, a church and other buildings. But erosion forced the residents to leave — with the last fleeing in 1922 — and for decades now the island has been receding into the bay and only one abandoned home remained, threatened by the bay.
