Maryland Route 291 (MD 291) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Maryland. The state highway runs 18.57 miles (29.89 km) from MD 20 in Chestertown east to the Delaware state line east of Millington, where the highway continues east as Delaware Route 6 (DE 6). MD 291 parallels the Chester River along the southern edge of Kent County, connecting Chestertown with U.S. Route 301 (US 301). The state highway follows much of what was originally MD 447, which was constructed between US 213 in Chestertown and MD 290 at Chesterville around 1930. MD 291 itself was built east of Millington around 1930. The state highway was extended west toward Chesterville in the early 1930s, but was not complete to MD 290 until the late 1940s. MD 291 was extended west to US 213 along a partially new alignment in the early 1960s, superseding MD 447. MD 291 reached its present western terminus at MD 20 in 1969.
