Ward Brothers Workshop

photoThe third museum operated by the Crisfield Heritage Foundation is the Ward Brothers’ Workshop. Now recognized as masters of decoy and decorative bird carving, they worked here at their workshop all of their lives, producing nearly 25,000 decoys in 60 years.

Their workshop is actually composed of the separate structures which were combined by Lem and Steve to form a complete decoy carving and painting workshop.

These three museums offer the visitor a complete cultural heritage experience of this historic waterfront town. Find out more about the Ward Brother at:
