interest groups

Many of our members choose to become involved with us through one of our volunteer Interest Groups. These groups provide a unique and specialized way to give back to the Historical Society. Please look below for existing groups. If you are interested in creating a group that doesn't currently exist and will strengthen our mission, contact us today!

Decorative Arts

Do you have a passion or curiosity about furniture, silver, ceramics or quilts? This group fosters knowledge of the decorative arts through educational functions and a broadened knowledge of Eastern Shore made pieces as well as pieces from around the world.
