Smith Island Center - Ewell, MD
Smith Island Center
Photo Tour   
Smith Island Center is a small museum in the tiny community of Ewell on one of only three Chesapeake Bay islands still occupied by working watermen and their families. At Island residents' busiest time--the crabbing season–the Center provides a spot for increasing numbers of visitors to learn about the Island, its history, economic and social life. The center includes permanent exhibits and a 20 minute film on: the history of the Island, working on the water, the interaction of people and the Chesapeake Bay, the role of women in Island life and the distinctive speech patterns which have developed on the Island.
Hours: The Center is open daily April through October from 12 to 4 p.m.
Fees: The Center charges a small fee for the museum.
