Port Deposit Heritage Corporation was founded by Grace Humphries.  What a great lady she was!  She founded this group to salvage the history of Port Deposit before it becomes lost. 


The museum is open every 2nd and 4th Sunday (May through October) from 1pm-5pm.  It is accessible by appointment any other time.



The museum exhibits a collection of Indian arrowheads, Civil War Memorabilia (including original letters from soldiers), and an extensive collection of photographs of the town and of those who lived in Port Deposit over many generations. 

The museum archives are also available for research and genealogical projects to members of the museum, or for a donation.

The second floor meeting room is available for small gatherings.  It can accommodate 35 people comfortably.


The historic Paw Paw building is not handicap accessible, unfortunately
