Despite some opposition to building a museum profiling county life at Terrapin Park, museum organizers are beginning their first steps to turn the 16year dream into reality.
County Commissioners chose Terrapin Park over a list of more than 100 sites in the county last week. The park won the “ultimate argument” because of its strategic location, said Museum Director Charles D. Melson.
One third of the county’s residents live in the Kent Island area, Melson said. The park also has a close proximity to emergency services, food, service stations, Route 301/50 and the Bay Bridge, considered the gateway to the Eastern Shore.
