Eagle, Dodson and Higgins Houses have looked out over the St. Michaels waterfront for well over a hundred years now. When they were first built, the town's harbor would have been full of work boats, everything from oyster tonging skiffs and canoes to large commercial sailing vessels. The twice-weekly arrival of the steamboat from Baltimore would have been a cause for excitement.

The steamboat was a sign of things to come. By the end of the nineteenth century the owners of these houses were living elsewhere so they could rent out their former homes to tourists and summer boarders. It wouldn't be long before the character of the boat traffic in St. Michaels harbor would change as well.

Today the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum preserves these historic waterfront houses as administrative offices.
