The Crab House at Oyster Creek: The Lure of Local Places with Michael J. Chiarappa, Ph.D.
Research Professor of Chesapeake Regional Studies and Director, Cultural and Natural Resource Initiatives Center for Environment and Society at Washington College
The Andersen crab house on Oyster Creek is located on a waterway consisting of New Jersey’s Great Bay and the Mullica River. It is a building type that has long served oystermen, clammers, crabbers, finfishers, and waterfowlers along New Jersey’s Atlantic Ocean and Delaware Bay coastlines. Having survived for almost ninety years, the building’s siting allows Phil Andersen to effectively tend the adjacent crabbing grounds and prepare the catch for market. Learn about the building’s features, use, connection to the environment and sense of place.
The Delaware Bay Museum will be open for free self guided tours. The Meerwald Mercantile will be open featuring items from Art 2 Art, Art for a Better World, Jam Designs, BeStill, Golden Harvest Apiaries, Lena Mills, Gracie Moo Candles, Handcrafted by Abrham Warren, Deb DiMarco, Meadow View Farm and more!
