What used to be known as Oakland Mills became Tunis Mills, Maryland in 1879 when the town’s Post Office opened. The Mill, owned by W. W. Tunis started running circa 1865 and became the largest Mill on the Eastern Shore of Maryland! By 1900, 276 people lived in Tunis Mills and there was a daily stage to Easton, Maryland!
