The Captain Avery Museum is a place to discover Chesapeake Bay life — past, present, and future. This property, first developed in the 1850's, has been continuously owned by the people connected to the water by occupation, recreational interests, passion for history, or commitment to the health of the Bay.

We invite you to explore and enjoy our historic home and waterfront.

While You're Here:

Delve into the history of working the water.

Salem Avery settled here from New England in the 1850's to make his living on Chesapeake Bay oysters and captain a buyboat. Visit our boatshed exhibit to appreciate what it took to work the water and live as a waterman.

Discover why this property was transformed into a rustic fishing club for more than 60 years, beginning in 1923. What changes were happening in the 1900's that altered the commercial industry and spurred interest in recreational fishing?

Tour our gardens designed to prevent pollutants from entering the Bay. These gardens slow rainwater, spread it out, and allow it to soak in. Enjoy the beauty and take home ideas you can duplicate in your own garden or community.
