The Maryland Dove will arrive at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on Friday, June 28, and can be seen out on the Miles River and dockside through Sunday, June 30. A reproduction of the 17th century trading ship that accompanied the first European settlers to what is now Maryland, the vessel will be open for boarding to all Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum guests, which include tour with admission.
Built in a shipyard near Cambridge, Md., in 1978, Maryland Dove is owned by the state of Maryland and operated and maintained by the Historic St. Mary’s City Commission. From now through 2021, CBMM’s working Shipyard will be constructing the ship’s successor in full public view.
