Exhibit: Harry M. Walsh Waterfowling Artifacts Exhibit
Harry M. Walsh Waterfowling Artifacts Exhibit
Forty-nine years ago, the first Waterfowl Festival was born to both celebrate the Eastern Shore’s unique heritage and raise awareness of the challenges to the region’s beautiful environment. In this exhibit, visitors learn about the evolution of waterfowling, from an economic necessity to the sport of today. Some of these seldom seen treasures, on loan from private and museum collections, date back hundreds of years, and include decoys, guns, gunning boats and countless related items. Many are priceless rarities, offered up by collectors.
