The pirates are coming! The pirates are coming!
Did you know the first act of piracy in Maryland occurred near what is now called Garrett Island in 1635? To commemorate this odious event, the Susquehanna Museum at the Lock House is hosting a Pirate Encampment July 11 & 12. Re-enactors will recreate the life of pirates through living history demonstrations using authentic period dress, customs and mannerisms. See the pirates live, work, play and of course, plunder! The encampment is open both Saturday (10-5) and Sunday (10-3). Adults are $3 and Kids 5-12 are $1.
In conjunction with this event, the Lock House Museum is having a Pirate Gala Saturday July 11th from 7-11 pm on the museum grounds.
