Chesapeake lighthouse program set to shine


The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., begins a new “This Old Chesapeake House” speaker series on Jan. 17, with two more sessions scheduled for Jan. 31 and Feb. 5.

Bay lighthouses, vanishing landscapes, and historical restoration are subjects for this three-part series. The public is invited, with advanced registration required.

Old houses are part of the character of the Chesapeake landscape and remind of the role of the past in our day-to-day lives. The three sessions explore the intimate history, painstaking restoration, and ongoing preservation efforts of old houses, large and small, public and private, from throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.

The cost for individual sessions is $6 for members and $8 for non-members, or you can register for all three sessions at $15 for members and $20 for non-members. For information, visit or call (410) 745-2916.
