Experience life as part of a 19th-century waterman’s family or learn how later residents brought their families here year after year to “Our Place” for summer getaways at this active community-based museum with a lovely waterfront setting.
Our mission is to engage our community and visitors with activities that explore evolving connections to the Chesapeake Bay through the prism of our historic home and waterfront property.
