The Old Harford Town Maritime Center (OHTMC) in West Denton is no more. But OHTMC’s legacy continues.
Choptank River Heritage sites were first catalogued by OHTMC and published in two volumes:
Maryland’s Upper Choptank River and Tuckahoe River Cultural Resource Inventory (1999)
Lower Choptank River Cultural Resource Inventory (2002)
These studies were funded by the Maryland Historical Trust. They identify many types of historic sites and structures, including:
- canneries, and
- sunken vessels
Since the inventories were published, Choptank River Heritage (CRH) continues the work of OHTMC by publishing historic maps, site descriptions, and stories of people and places of the Choptank River watershed.
Discovered your organization when searching for “lost” lighthouses in the area. Found a previously unknown lighthouse (Hambrooks Bar) that is still standing. But I heard somewhere that it is slated for demolishing this summer. If you have more information, I would appreciate it. I am planning a day trip from Connecticut to see it before it is gone.
