  2. “At The Water’s Edge” Lecture Series presents “African American Leisure Destinations around Washington, D.C.”

    September 14, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Calvert Marine Museum

    “African American Leisure Destinations around Washington, D.C.” presented by Patsy Mose Fletcher; lecture provided by Calvert Marine Museum. Step back in time with “At The Water’s Edge,” a new lecture series highlighting how people enjoyed leisure time on the Chesapeake Bay from 1890 through the 1970s. In the late 19th century, Calvert County saw a major transformation in the use of local waters and shoreline – from a place of work to a place of play. These years witnessed a decline in the number of people making a living on the water along with rapid growth in recreational boating. Fishing, boating and family amusements became popular with a burgeoning middle class. Steamboats, trains from the Chesapeake Beach Railway and improved roads for automobiles brought destination recreation on the bay and along Calvert’s waterways within reach for an ever-increasing number of visitors.
