New Ward Brothers sign installed in Crisfield

(CRISFIELD, MD – March 13, 2017) On Saturday, March 4, a new sign featuring the Ward Brothers and proudly announcing the “Home of the Ward Brothers” was installed along Crisfield’s entrance corridor. Sponsored by the Crisfield Heritage Foundation and financed by a grant from Crisfield’s American Legion Post 16, this new sign replaces one that had deteriorated on the same site for more than 15 years.

The back of the sign includes a picture of the depot with a greeting to all departing Crisfield guests, “Thanks for Visiting, Come Back Soon.”  Built by local sign maker Becky Lowe of “Brushworks,” the new sign was installed with the help of CHF Executive Board members Doug Crockett and Terry Pehan.

CHF continues its focus on promoting the unique cultural and heritage tourism of Crisfield and nearby communities. The original Ward Workshop on Crisfield’s Sackertown Road is available for tours by appointment by calling 410-968-2501, and on special dates announced by CHF.

The Crisfield Heritage Foundation’s mission is to preserve the heritage of Crisfield and its environs; to educate the public concerning this heritage; and to serve as the central hub around which tourism in the Crisfield area revolves. CHF’s entities include the J. Millard Tawes Historical Museum & Gift Shop, Ward Brothers Workshop, J. Millard Tawes Library, Cedar Island Marsh Sanctuary, and the Crisfield Customs House. The second floor, waterfront Chesapeake Room at CHF’s Tawes Museum is now available for private rentals, with more information at 410-968-2501, or by visiting the non-profit’s recently updated website at crisfieldheritage.org.
