Chesapeake Heritage & Visitor Center

The Chesapeake Heritage & Visitor Center (CHVC) helps visitors discover the many sights to see in our region. Staff can assist visitors with directions, information and local destination points of interest. The CHVC is also home to two exhibits. The first features a quarterly rotating artist series. The artwork is by local artisans with an emphasis on the Eastern Shore, The second exhibit space is dedicated to the history, heritage, culture of the area. The CHVC is accessible from land and water and is a short drive from the Bay Bridge Airport. 

The Cross Island Trail encircles the grounds of the center. Also located on the property is the entrance to Ferry Point Park which includes a 530 foot boardwalk that takes visitors over marsh and onto a trail leading to open space, a wooded area and a beach overlooking the Chester River.
