The Retriever in its many breeds—Golden, Labrador, Chesapeake, Flat Coated, and more—have been the hunter’s companion performing essential tasks in the field for hundreds of years. This connection between dog and outdoorsman has been depicted in sporting art, recorded in literature, and prized at canine competitions.  This Welcome Gallery exhibit is being held in conjunction with the Golden Retriever Club of America’s National Specialty held in Salisbury, MD, September 2017.Opening reception information coming soon. 
El Galeon is a replica of a ship that sailed between the 16th and 18th centuries, transporting soldiers, colonists, goods, culture and ideas, and creating a centuries-old bond between America and Europe. El Galeon was a large armed vessel used in the transoceanic trade. The vessel evolved in response to Spain's need for an ocean-crossing cargo ship capable of fending off pirates. The galleon was the mainstay of the Spanish Treasure Fleets that brought Spain great wealth and world power from the New World. El Galeon is a 170-foot, 495-ton authentic wooden replica of a Spanish galleon. It is owned and operated by the Nao Victoria Foundation of Seville, Spain. Twenty crew members are tasked with maneuvering more than 9,600 square feet of sail in the same fashion as 16th century sailors. Visitors onboard wilI explore the history and authentic interiors of a 16th century galleon while experiencing the detailed craftsmanship and grandeur of the vessel. Click Here to see video footage

Paranormal Investigation - Furnace Town, Snow Hill Just 30 minutes from Ocean City - Join our Chesapeake Ghosts storyteller and a team of investigators from Delmarva Spirit Hunters for a 1.5-hour paranormal investigation at Furnace Town in Snow Hill. Furnace Town is a living heritage "outdoor" museum in the Pocomoke Forest. On the grounds, there are a collection of restored historic buildings - a church, a school, a blacksmith shop and the old remains of the iron furnace. These buildings and the grounds are legendary for having paranormal activity, and your group will be able to enter some of the buildings - including the old Church - home of the "Heavy Bible."  You will also be able to investigate around the old iron furnace and go deeper into the forest -- - at night. The highlight will be walking into the secluded (and haunted) Pocomoke Forest after dark (weather permitting).  Sightings of Sampson Harmon, a free Black man who worked at the iron furnace and lived in the forest with his cats until he was 104 years old have been known to occur. Some people catch a glimpse of his cat. Harmon is one of over a dozen legendary spirits said to haunt the Pocomoke Forest. This forest has a 200 year legacy of being haunted, and it is by far, the most haunted forest in Maryland.  "Ghost meters" that identify electromagnetic energy will be provided for guests to use during the investigation. Guests are invited and encouraged to bring their own ghost hunting equipment.  Group limited to 25. BOOK NOW online

The Haunted Ocean City Ghost Walk There are ghosts in Ocean City! Who would suspect that tucked into all the concrete, asphalt and high rises, there were spirits - still active in some of the hotels, stores, houses and parks in the historic district of old Ocean City? Your storyteller will reveal a haunted history like no other Eastern Shore destination. There are over a dozen ghosts that linger in these places. There's a child spirit at the lifesaving station, a young man at the Tarry-A-While, a woman at Dolle's Candyland, jazz musicians at the Henry Hotel and a very mischevious - if not angry ghost at the Shoreham hotel (Shenanigans). Even Trimpers Amusements has a has a few ghosts. This ghost walk is the only one of our eleven tours where we talk about not one - but TWO - properties that have achieved the "haunted trifecta" meaning they've had a murder, a suicide, and an accidental death. Join us and learn the stories. SITES ON THE OCEAN CITY GHOST WALK include the Ocean City Life-saving Museum, Tarry-A-While guest house, the Henry Hotel, Atlantic Hotel, Shoreham Hotel, Trimper Amusements, the Plim Plaza, the Assateague Indian and other properties from the Inlet to 4th Street in the historic district.

Casting Crowns and special guest Zach Williams will perform at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center on Sunday, Oct. 8, as part of The Very Next Thing Tour. The show is at 7 p.m. Having served as a full-time youth pastor for over 25 years, Casting Crowns’ front man, Mark Hall, continues to draw inspiration from the well of real life. “Because we have the honor of walking with people in our churches, we get to see what people are going through – the issues that are impacting everyone now,” shares Hall. “It’s in these situations that ideas are born for what we all need to hear right here and right now.” The local church has been the base for Casting Crowns’ music since their label debut release in 2003. With more than 9 million records sold and the title of Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007, it’s still where the music is created. Hall and his bandmates – Juan and Melodee DeVevo, Megan Garrett, Brian Scoggin, Josh Mix and Chris Huffman – continue to work in ministry in their respective churches. The local church is the heartbeat of the band and the songs are an outpouring of that. “The Very Next Thing,” Casting Crowns’ latest offering, is a collection of intimate songs as well as upbeat, fresh sounding tracks with impactful lyrics centered around identifying and acting on what’s right next to you.
