Shady Side’s Capt. Avery Museum Needs Weekend Docents
Do you like to dress up in 1800s garb? Are you a social-type person? Do you enjoy talking about history and the heritage of the Chesapeake Bay with others? Then become a volunteer docent at Capt. Avery Museum in Shady Side.
The museum is the home of Captain Salem Avery who worked the waters of the Chesapeake as a buy boat captain in the late 19th century. He is typical of the watermen of that era whose history the Museum seeks to preserve. For further information, please call Museum Director Vicki Petersen at 410-867-4486.
