Beyond Jamestown: Life 400 Years Ago

block Havre de Grace Maritime Museum

This project will promote the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail through the creation of interior and exterior interpretive exhibits and teaching stations. The interior exhibits and teaching stations will feature the historical significance of Captain Smith’s voyages, the life ways of the native Susquehannock culture, and continued European settlement to 1660, showcasing the pre-Contact environment of the Bay and the effects of interaction on our modern community. The exterior exhibits will connect the visitor from the pier on the Bay to the Maritime Museum, introduce the visitor to the history and culture of the area, and orient the visitor to the other Gateways in Havre de Grace, Maryland.
