The Crisfield Heritage Foundation (CHF), is your link to discovering and learning about a city that is at the heart of Chesapeake Bay culture and history.  Many things come to mind when thinking of Crisfield; Seafood, sunsets and outdoor recreation are a few.  Our history is fascinating, environment pristine and our culture is distinctive.

Crisfield’s way of life has evolved over three and a half centuries.  The history and culture has been  directly connected to the waters and lands of the Chesapeake Bay.

Since 1977, CHF has been committed to preserving the history and culture of Crisfield and the surrounding areas through our collections, exhibits, educational programs, and special events.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the CHF, we are launching a variety of new activities and attractions, along with continuing the restoration of the Crisfield Customs House.  Please browse this site to see what the CHF offers and view our Plan Your Visit page so you too can become better connected to the Chesapeake Bay way of life.

The Crisfield Heritage Foundation is a 501C (3) Non-Profit Organization.  Please view our Get Involved page to see how your contribution will help preserve the heritage of Crisfield.
