AAA Editor Notes
Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park/Museum is in Fell's Point at 1417 Thames St. at jct. Caroline St. It is near the site where the Chesapeake Marine Railway and Dry Dock Co., which Myers helped found in 1866, used to be located. On the grounds is a replica of a marine railway, a device allowing boats to be pulled out of the water so they can be worked on at a dry dock. A 10-minute film shares stories about Douglass and Myers as well as Baltimore African-American history.
Artifacts found in the area are displayed, and panels feature timelines of Douglass' and Myers' lives as well as local African-American history. There are interactive exhibits for children as well as panoramic views of Baltimore's harbor.
