Dedicated as a national heritage site, the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park celebrates the accomplishments of African American entrepreneurs throughout the history of Baltimore’s maritime industry. Located in historic Fell’s Point where the cobblestone streets meet the water, the views from the park are some of the best in the city, making the park a hotspot for outdoor events and weddings.
With 5,000 square feet of gallery space divided into permanent exhibits, exhibitions, and interactive learning centers, the maritime park highlights the lives of Frederick Douglass and Isaac Myers, the founding of the Chesapeake Marine Railway and Dry Dock Company, as well as the establishment of an African American community in Baltimore in the 1800s. Visitors are welcome to explore the park and galleries on their own or schedule a guided tour where they can learn to caulk, build boats, and participate in many other family oriented activities.
