Contest #289 answer: Holland Island, Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, US

It used to be one of the largest inhabited islands in Chesapeake Bay, until 1918 when the rising sea level and the erosion by the tide and wind forced the last inhabitants to move away.


In 2010 the last house on the island collapsed.
