We invite you to come spend an afternoon, a day, weekend or vacation with us.  If you’re looking to explore the heritage and culture of the Chesapeake Bay, Crisfield is the place to visit.

Interested in nature, biology and the ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay?  Visit us in Crisfield, the gateway to the Chesapeake, to learn more.

Ever wonder how those crabs and oysters go from being harvested out of the Bay to  reaching your table?  Since its outset, Crisfield has been at the forefront of the Chesapeake Bay seafood industry and the Crisfield Heritage Foundation (CHF) will take you into this fascinating aquatic world.  This is quite an experience, one that is only brought to by the CHF.

CHF’s staff and volunteers are here to bring our world to you!

Coming to Crisfield on an impromptu day-trip?  Be sure to stop into Tawes Museum, here you’ll find our visitor center where you can get the information needed to enjoy all of what Crisfield has to offer.

We look forward to meeting you!
