SALISBURY, Md. – A public presentation of Pirate’s Wharf history is scheduled for Wednesday, March 6 at 6 p.m. in the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center Flanders Rooms.
Through a mini-grant from the Lower Eastern Shore Heritage Area Council, the County was able to hire Mike Hitch as a consultant to develop the story of Pirate’s Wharf. Hitch is a local genealogist and historian known for his research on Delmarva.
During the presentation, Hitch will detail his findings on the history of Pirate’s Wharf, dating from 1666 to current day. Hitch will also provide recommendations for how the County can incorporate the property’s history into the park’s master plan.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend.
