Background
The Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park was founded in September, 2002 as an institiution to collect and preserve the boatbuilding traditions and history of Deltaville, once called the "Boatbuilding Capital of the Chesapeake." Formerly partnered with the Deltaville Community Association, the Deltaville Maritime Museum was established as a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit on January 1, 2011. The museum preserves boatbuilding skills through activities such as Family Boatbuilding Week, held every year in July, and educational programs initiated in our Boatbuilding Shop, such as rebuilding the 1924 64' log bottomed deck boat, the F.D. Crockett, which was recently listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register.
