Bayside History Museum commemorates 
“The 60th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Marvel" 
August 12, 2015, 7:00pm-9:00pm 
at the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department Bay View Hall

On August 12, 1955, as gale force winds from Hurricane Connie raged up the Chesapeake Bay, a three-masted schooner by the name of the Levin J. Marvel broke apart off of Holland Point. Fourteen of the 27 passengers on board died in this tragedy. Thirteen passengers survived due to the heroic efforts of many local residents.

The Bayside History Museum will  present a program commemorating “The 60th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Marvel" on August 12, 2015, 7:00pm - 9:00pm at the North Beach Volunteer Fire Department Bay View Hall. We will also be celebrating the bravery of the LOCAL HEROES and the valiant community effort that came together that terrible night.

The Bayside History Museum would like to hear from you if you have personal recollections, family stories, and / or memorabilia to share at this event. Please call Diane Harrison 443-968-2420 or email: baysidehistorymuseum@hotmail.com
