August 9, 2014 – The Women of Fell’s Point a restoration project & a story to be told

The Preservation Society is engaged in the process of illuminating the lives, fortunes and challenging times of some of Fell’s Point’s women to coincide with the presentation of the new film “Fell’s Point,Prize of the Chesapeake”.

We are undertaking the conservation of the lavishly embellished wedding ensemble worn by Mary Leake upon her marriage to Captain Henry Dashiell along with his correspondence to her during his eight month imprisonment by the British during the War of 1812.
