Guests to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. can see Lady Maryland dockside from Friday, October 20 through Monday, October 23.
Built in 1985 by the Living Classrooms Foundation, Lady Maryland is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay pungy schooner. Pungies were considered fast sailing vessels in the 1800s, and were primarily used as workboats carrying perishable cargo such as oysters, watermelons, tomatoes, fish, peaches, and grain.
Throughout the warmer months, CBMM's marina is host to numerous visiting tall ships and vessels, with on-board programming and dockside tour opportunities. For more information about docking at CBMM, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916. For more about Lady Maryland and the Living Classroom Foundation, go to livingclassrooms.org.
