Tilghman Watermen’s Museum

In 2007, a handful of Tilghman’s Island residents came together to try to preserve a historic workboat, the Kathryn. This singular idea soon expanded into the larger effort to record the ongoing story of Tilghman’s Island’s unique community, a community rich in history and with a culture centered on the work of watermen and their families. These early efforts lead to the birth of the Tilghman Watermen’s Museum.

Current exhibitions focus on the art and artifacts of the island and boat models: a remarkable collection of original paintings and remarqued prints, and boat models by Bill Sommers, Vincent Haddaway, and others as well as historic photographs
