The Historical Freedom Shrine is a 20-ton monument dedicated to 10 brave men, who brought about voter reform on the local and state level in Maryland. It is located on private property at 7014 East New Market Elwood Road in Hurlock, Maryland. The reform changed the voting system in Maryland in 1985.

U.S. Courts mandated voting equity in Dorchester County, and the process included dividing the county into five districts.  A politician running for office in one of these districts must live in that district. This gave representation to the entirety of the county by those who lived in each region.
