The Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park was founded in September, 2002 as an institution to collect and preserve the boatbuilding history of Deltaville, once called the “Boatbuilding Capital of the Chesapeake.” The mission of the museum is also to preserve the boatbuilding skills that made the area famous through activities, such as our annual Family Boatbuilding Week held every July, and through educational programs initiated in our Boatbuilding Shop, such as the rebuilding of the 63’ log bottomed buyboat, the F.D. Crockett.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park.


The Holly Point Nature Park is open dawn to dusk every day. Pets always welcome, however dogs must be kept on a leash. Thanks!
