Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park
—A Living Classroom —
Time, abandonment, and development led to the disappearance of buildings over the years. Archaeological investigations conducted in the 1980s yielded artifacts that suggest what may have taken place here in the past. Merchants sold medicines in thick glass bottles. Wine bottled in faraway places graced tables in taverns and homes. Children played with marbles, dominos, and dolls inside homes and on the ground in grassless yards. Visit the museum and see these artifacts for yourself.
