Maryland Watermen's Monument.

Maryland Watermen's Monument

A roadside bronze sculpture is dedicated to the hard-working watermen of the state of Maryland. Two large fishermen are standing in a relatively tiny row boat holding only canoe paddles. If you get close and look in, you'll see they've caught some relatively large fish. Erected in 2003, the names of those who lost their lives to the sea are engraved around the memorial.

[Mike Gassmann, 11/21/2021]

The watermen harvested Chesapeake Bay oysters, crabs, and clams until their populations were exhausted in the 1990s.
