Deltaville, Virginia 

In 1608 Captain John Smith and 14 men set out to explore and map the Chesapeake Bay in the shallop Explorer. A shallop is a small, open boat built to operate in shallow water under sail or oar. The Deltaville Maritime Museum has constructed a replica of Captain Smith's boat which is on display at the museum.

More information on the Explorer and its history may be found on the Deltaville Maritime Museum's website.

Have a historic weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.
