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.



Interested in boats or the watermen culture? Join in on this maritime group and help preserve history and create lasting education programs.
