Enhancing Access and Interpretation of the Captain Salem Avery House Waterfront

block Captain Salem Avery House

Long closed off to visitors, the waterfront on the West River at this historic home in Shady Side, outside Annapolis, will now become accessible to visitors, giving them a richer experience of the life of the Chesapeake waterman who once lived here. Whether arriving by boat or by land, an improved pier will provide access and new interpretive exhibits with an interactive flair. Visitors will be able to try their hand at the centuries-old Chesapeake traditions of tonging and crabbing. They'll be able to explore the development of a new oyster garden near the river's shoreline. And they'll learn about grassroots efforts in local communities aiming to help restore the Chesapeake Bay to a fuller measure of environmental health.

Amount Funded: $23,110.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
