Route description

MD 347 begins at an intersection with MD 349 (Nanticoke Road) in Quantico. The state highway heads north as two-lane Quantico Road past scattered residences and Westside Primary School. After veering northwest at Catchpenny Road, MD 347 crosses Quantico Creek and passes through the historic center of Quantico. The state highway leaves Quantico after a sharp turn to the northeast at Old Athol Road and passes through farmland. Upon arriving in Hebron, the highway passes Westside Intermediate School and the historic home St. Giles. Within Hebron, MD 347 is known as Main Street and intersects MD 670 (Lillian Street). After leaving Hebron, the state highway continues northeast as Hebron Road, traversing Rewastico Creek before reaching its northern terminus at US 50 (Ocean Gateway).

History

The portion of MD 347 between Hebron and what is now US 50 was completed as a state-aid road by 1915. The next segment completed was from MD 349 to the center of Quantico by 1926. MD 347 was completed between Hebron and Quantico by 1930.
