    Maryland was founded originally as a colony for Catholics fleeing religious persecution in England. It's split almost in half by the Chesapeake Bay, so it's a very big maritime state, receiving most of its wealth from boating, shipping,fishing industries or port/harbor commerce. Baltimore has one of the biggest ports in the country and is a very industrial city while Western Maryland is mainly farmland(farming is also big in Maryland).
