If you grew up in Maryland, you’ll remember the Ark and the Dove from history class: the two ships that sailed over from England to start the Maryland colony in 1634. A replica, Maryland Dove, was built forty years ago and has been homeported in Historic St. Mary’s City ever since, representing the state’s colonial history.

Now, a new Maryland Dove will be built, adding historic features that shipbuilders didn’t know about when creating the first replica. And the entire ship will be constructed at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s shipyard in St. Michaels, giving visitors a front-row seat to the process.
