Joppa Steamboat Wharf Exhibits and Programs

block Wharves at Choptank Crossing

This Gateways grant will help develop a series of exhibits for the new Joppa Steamboat Wharf Visitors Center at the Wharves at Choptank Crossing. The new facility, a reconstruction of a typical 19th century steamboat landing, will present programs and exhibits on Choptank River fisheries, including a replication of a nineteenth century fish hatchery along the Joppa Wharf riverfront. Additional exhibits will focus on trade and commerce along the Choptank and will include historic photographs and oral histories of people working along the river. The Old Harford Town Maritime Center and its partners will provide matching funds and labor for the project

Amount Funded: $20,000.00

Start Date: 08/15/2003
