Visit the Community Gallery at the Museum of Historic Annapolis through December to experience Summer’s Legacy: Preserving the Beaches.

Between the 1920s and 1970s, a portion of the Annapolis waterfront became an entertainment haven for the Black community. Today, little remains of Carr’s, Sparrow’s, and Elktonia Beaches.

In 2022, a collaborative effort by federal, state, county, city, and private organizations saved the last remaining parcel of undeveloped land. Celebrate and explore the history and preservation of these cultural treasures in our newest Community Gallery exhibit, Summer’s Legacy: Preserving the Beaches.

This exhibit was developed in partnership with Blacks of the Chesapeake, Chesapeake Conservancy, and Comacell Brown, Jr.
