The Friends of the Cecil County Public Library will host an exciting historical program, “Shipwrecks on the Chesapeake Bay,” on Wednesday, November 4, at 7 p.m. at the Elkton Central Library. The Chesapeake Bay is a key feature of Maryland’s geography, but less well known as a graveyard for ships, passengers, and their crews. More than 1800 shipwrecks have been documented on the Bay from Colonial Era to present. Presenter Don Bonsteel, from the Maryland Department of the Enoch Pratt, will discuss five of the most interesting documented cases for shipwrecks on the Bay.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information or to register please call the Elkton Central Library’s information desk at 410-996-5600 ext.481, or visit our website at www.ebranch.cecil.info.
