Welcome to the Captain Avery Museum and the 1859 home of Salem Avery, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Learn about the life and livelihood of a Chesapeake Bay waterman in the late 19th century; the fishing club that owned the home for 60 years; and the exciting ways local history and the property are being preserved today.
