Annapolis Maritime MuseumAt the turn of the 20th century, eight or more oyster houses surrounded Annapolis City Dock and harbor. Oysters were shucked, packed and shipped all around the country by steamboat and railroad. The market for "Chesapeake white gold" was so lucrative, Maryland and Virginia watermen sometimes exchanged gunfire with the Maryland Oyster Police — and each other — over the right to harvest.
