Heart of Chesapeake Country Heritage Area partners include local museums, organizations, and municipalities that advance the mission and goals of the Heritage Area by protecting, preserving, and promoting Dorchester County’s unique historic, cultural and natural resources. Each month, we spotlight a heritage partner who has supported heritage tourism in Dorchester County with a project, program, site, or event funded by either a Maryland Heritage Areas Authority grant or a Heart of Chesapeake Country Heritage Area Mini-Grant.
