Delmarva Destinations Bus Trip: Friday, March 16, 2018
Destination: Cambridge Maryland
Follow in the footsteps of an American Legend, celebrate Women’s History Month, and re-discover some of the often overlooked regions of Delmarva’s Underground Railroad.
We will employee the knowledge of Harriet Tubman Tours of Dorchester County Maryland in order understand the similarities and differences between Maryland’s and Delaware’s shores during the era of slavery.
Begin the day at Linchester Mill, one of the last operating water powered mills on the Eastern Shore where the lost development of American millinery works still echo.
Continue towards the Chesapeake Bay with a stopover at Buckstown Village Country Store. A 19th
century site where Harriet Tubman was nearly killed trying to protect a young slave boy who was fleeing an angry overseer.
Arrive by lunch time at the recently opened Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Visitors Center where participants will have their choice of a boxed lunch option to enjoy while exploring the legacy of this rich site.
End the day by the river in Cambridge, with enough free time for snacking, shopping, or a visit to the
Ruark Boat Works and Richardson Maritime Museum (only a additional $5 self-pay entrance fee). Only a short day trip away from Lewes we hope the allure of the shore will allow you to be swept away by its significant history.
