We wandered around Easton and found this museum. This day there was an exhibit honoring the 150th Anniversary of the founding of Unionville....A town founded by local black civil war soldiers who fought in the war, returned from the war, and were given their freedom and were given a parcel of land upon their return. All 18 men are now buried behind the church they founded. (for more info ....read Mindie Burgoyne's post) So glad we stopped.

Admittedly after thirty years of vacationing here, I finally visited because I really wanted to see the special exhibit about the Unionville Church. Prior reviews mention that the Museum is small, it has short hours and its running on a shoestring.
However, what they do is nice. And, if you are there in the summer, the gardens are lovely, a realy surprise actually. Even if you are not interested in going inside, check out the shady lawns.

This is a typical small town museum. It's very small and the collection is of mixed interest. It's amazing that some of the pieces have survived, but many are just old stuff. The interpretation is indifferent and the attempt at themes sometimes a bit strained. If you want to know a little bit about the history of the Eastern Shore this is it, because the state historical museum in Baltimore ignores this area.

They change the exhibits frequently. This is a worthy organization to support. There is a parking lot along the side of the building. There is a really nice garden behind the museum to stroll through.

Despite information at the Vistors Center to the opposite, the museum was closed when we got there. Staff at the museum explained that they should have updated their hours. Despite that, they turned on the lights and allowed us to self-tour the museum. It is small, but very well done.
