Exhibits & Programs

The Bordley History Center regularly presents exhibits on local history in its High Street gallery window and its museum. The current exhibits feature the new, updated, and expanded African American Heritage Walk, African Americans in Chestertown, Maryland, 1700s to the Present.  Available as a summary brochure and a 34-page book, both with maps, the Heritage Walk tells the stories of some of the remarkable men and women who made their homes and businesses here and helped make Chestertown the vibrant place it was and continues to be. The book and exhibits feature many photographs and illustrations. The exhibits will be in the Bordley History Center through July. The brochure and book can be downloaded on the Home Page of this website.

From time to time, the Society invites authors or historians to present a program on local history. The best way to keep up with these developing programs is to become a member, when you will receive invitations by email.
