With a colonial history dating back to the 17th century, Chestertown, Maryland is proud of its maritime heritage. Sitting on the banks of the Chester River, sailing ships can still be seen coming into port. The city is the home of the Schooner Sultana, an exact replica of an 18th century ship that served in the British Royal Navy, now operating as an educational vessel. Every Memorial Day, the city hosts The Chestertown Tea Party Festival, proudly tossing the British overboard annually.

We stopped in while in town over the Thanksgiving holiday. Beautiful gallery, very personal. The art was varied in terms of style and medium, but every piece was engaging. The owner was there, and took the time to explain some of the pieces.

I am partial because I am a Eastern Shore Maryland girl now living in Florida for almost 16 years but I just love Chestertown Historical Downtown. I never appreciated when I was a child but now when I return I am in awe of just how beautiful it all is!!

Sylvia is a play not to be missed. The performers were superb. Will Robinson played Greg, Christine Kinloch played Sylvia, Jennifer Kafka Smith played Kate,and multi talented Brian Betley played Tom, Phyllis, and Leslie.
We were visiting on our boat to this charming town of Chestertown and noticed the play was being performed. We got tickets and are so glad we did.
Bonnie Hill did a wonderful job directing this fun play.
