  1. “At The Water’s Edge” Lecture Series presents “Boats, Roads, Trains and Planes: A Look Back in Calvert County”

    April 12, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Calvert Marine Museum

    “Boats, Roads, Trains and Planes: A Look Back in Calvert County” presented by Dr. Ralph Eshelman 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.
