  4. At the Water's Edge Lecture Series: Gambling

    March 22, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Harms Gallery

    Lecture presented by Grace Mary Brady and provided by Bayside History Museum. “At The Water’s Edge” is a new lecture series highlighting how people enjoyed leisure time on the Chesapeake Bay from 1890 through the 1970’s. Beginning in the late 19th century, Calvert County saw a major transformation in the use of local waters and shoreline – from a place of work to a place of play. These years witnessed a decline in the numbers of people making a living on the water, combined with a rapid growth in recreational boating. Fishing, boating and get-away amusements became popular with a burgeoning middle class. Steamboats, trains from the Chesapeake Beach Railway, and improved roads for automobiles brought destination recreation on the bay and along Calvert’s waterways within reach for an ever-increasing number of visitors.
