The Herrington Harbour North Historic Village Museum is an effort to preserve local vernacular architecture that would otherwise be lost to development. By touring the village, visitors get a glimpse of life in Maryland during the 1700s to early 1900s. Here you will find a 13-building village featuring area exhibits, a one-room schoolhouse, African-American beneficial society meeting house, dwellings, and outbuildings that have been saved from demolition and moved to the site.
Four Rivers Area Story Project
Sharyn Martin is a docent and member of the Deal Area Historical Society. When she discovered the African-American Meeting House (1895) at the Herrington Harbour North Historic Village, it became especially close to her because of the significance of that building in the African-American community in the Deale area. This is Sharyn’s story of the special place this building has in our history and the heritage that is still relevant today.
