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.
