The St. Michaels History Project

St. Michaels and the Bay Hundred regions, the land celebrated in James Michener’s best-selling novel Chesapeake, have had a rich history for at least half a millennium. The St. Michaels Museum is embarked on a project to document this history for publication in monograph, the idea being that we would like to make it the definitive scholarly work on this unique region which is representative of what has gone on in America for the past thousand years. Wikipedia has a brief history of St. Michaels which can be found here, but it contains inaccuracies.  

If you would like to participate in this important project, please send a note to the Museum using this link, and someone will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
