“Must See” Museums to Visit in Kent County
History on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is rich and diverse. That’s why we thought we’d list a few of the unusual museums you can visit while you’re here.
The Massey Air Museum–What were rural airports like? What was aviation like in its early days? Now you can find out! This museum is billed as a “living airport.” It’s reminiscent of days gone by when life was not so fast or highly technological. You’ll find activities like antique aircraft restoration, annual fly-ins, glider rides and more.
Kent Museum–Here you’ll find a collection of rural agricultural heritage and domestic life in Kent County. Charley’s House is the last surviving dwelling in Chestertown of a small black community. The house was built in the 1840’s. Visit the Stavely family grave while you there. It dates to back to the Revolutionary War. There’s also hiking and riding areas nearby.
Cliff’s Schoolhouse--It’s the last remaining one-room schoolhouse in Kent County. And it’s loaded with treasures! Erected in 1878, it served the watermen and farming community until 1939. Preserved in its original condition, it’s also equipped with many original furnishings.
