Rediscovering Lost London Town: Interpreting a Chesapeake Gateway to the Past

block Historic London Town and Gardens

The London Town Foundation will design, fabricate, and install interpretive exhibits within the new $5.3 million visitor center and museum currently under construction at Historic London Town and Gardens. The two-story building will feature a 3,600 square foot exhibit area, a 576 square foot orientation area, an archaeology lab and a classroom. The new center will serve as a much-needed focal point for visitor orientation, will offer comprehensive interpretation of the site, and will provide space for research and educational activities. The exhibits will interpret London Town’s story as a colonial port town whose rise, heyday, and decline was related to its waterfront location and access to the Chesapeake Bay. The exhibits will explore the town's role in colonial transportation and commercial history, and will reference the site's historic village, native formal gardens and waterfront area. The exhibit area will provide a balanced load of active and passive exhibits that will address multiple learning styles and age groups.

Amount Funded: $150,000.00

Start Date: 09/04/2004
