The Wilderness, or High Banks, is a historic home at Matthews, Talbot County, Maryland, United States. It overlooks the Choptank River and was constructed in two periods. The smaller 21⁄2-story, four-bay-long brick structure is attributed to the 1780-90 period, and the larger portion is in Flemish bond brick and dates to around 1815. Also on the property are two early outbuildings, a smokehouse, and dairy. It was the home of Daniel Martin, the 20th Governor of Maryland.
