J. Millard Tawes Historical Museum and Ward Brothers Workshop - Crisfield, MD
Activities: The Tawes Historical Museum is the starting place for the Port of Crisfield Escorted Walking Tour and the Ward Brothers Heritage Tour. The Port of Crisfield tour takes visitors through the port area of the City. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to a modern crab and oyster processing facility where one can see first hand how the products of the Chesapeake are made ready for market.

The Ward Brothers Heritage Tour takes visitors back in time to the days of Lem and Steve Ward—the founders of the art form known as decoy carving and painting. A visit to their workshop and the little known Jenkins Creek area make this tour a truly unique experience.
