Bainbridge Museum, damaged by water, makes a move [Port Deposit]

The Bainbridge Museum, at the foot of Jacob Tome Highway in Port Deposit, was damaged by water back in December, and several displays were ruined. Luckily, the leaking pipes were discovered by museum association secretary Carolyn Spencer when she stopped by the museum before Christmas to retrieve a picture for the newsletter. All the displays and artifacts had to be moved out of the building. Now, three months later, the museum has found a new home. On March 13, the U.S. Navy Test Center Bainbridge Historical Association Officers and museum volunteers transferred all the memorabilia to a new home in the Bank Building, in the Town Square.
