Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

Higgins, Dodson, and Eagle houses have looked out over the St. Michaels waterfront for well over a century. When they were built, the harbor was full of workboats, from oyster tonging skiffs and canoes to large commercial sailing vessels. Between 1876 and 1891, the twice-weekly arrival of the steamboat from Baltimore spurred a flurry of activity.

The steamboat was a sign of things to come. By 1886, the owners of these houses were living elsewhere so they could rent their former homes to tourists and summer boarders. Ultimately, the character of the boat traffic in St. Michaels would change as well.

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