The Eastern Shore Sights



Delmarva Discovery Review

Opened in 2009, this modern structure on the banks of the Pocomoke River delivers hands-on experiences of the region's history. Exhibits focus on the work- and lifestyles of indigenous communities and early settlers, on local wildlife, and on the river as a fishing and shipbuilding industry hub and a major port for Chesapeake Bay steamers during the 19th century. The center's aquarium has a 6,000-gallon tank containing fish found in the Pocomoke River.
