The third local partnership of the DSMP project is with the Waterman's Museum in Rock Hall and Washington College.
The Waterman's Museum began in 1990 when a committee of Rock Hall community members and Haven Harbour Marina staff and ownership decided that area watermen were in need of their own unique center for recorded history.
Today, the museum includes exhibits on oystering, crabbing and fishing. A reproduction of a shanty house is also on display, along with local carvings and of course boats.
The first phase of this project is being completed by incoming first-year students in the college's Orientation Explore! program, Making History: Making Museums. In just under three days students will engage in object-based primary-source research, digitize parts of the museum's collection and begin the creation of a VR exhibit of the museum's holdings.
Stay tuned for future developments in this collaboration!
