Story Tour at the Depot

The CSP, after many years of planning, studying and research, was launched in March of 2016 offering historical tours and memorabilia.  The first year was a great success and we thank every person who has made it possible.  For 2017, we are working to offer more of the same and expand our tourism services as well as the merchandise.

We’re delighted to have received over 35 FIVE STAR ratings on our facebook page, many with comments. View the pics of some of our events and activities, with testimonials below.  Thank you.

Sunset Kayak Tour
★★★★ “Joes grasp of the history is pretty astounding. He researchers old maps, public records and state history related to the importance of history of Crisfield and the surrounding area. His conversations with the old timers will help develop an oral history not yet written. The colorization of old pictures by his mom Linda provides a more clear historic snapshot. When I think of Crisfield, there is more than meets the eye. Joe is proving that.” – Kathleen Kirkbride Garton
