On June 22-24, 1608, Captain John Smith and his small crew in an open boat explored the waters adjacent to Hancock's Resolution Park. This is proved by his mapping of the Magothy River, Bodkin Creek, and the Patapsco River (which he called the "Bolus").

This plaque commemorates the 400th anniversary of his arrival on these shores. His legacy is nationally recognized by the establishment of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.
