Tour of Genesar and the Rackliffe House
March 21, 2019
12:00 pm—4:00 pm


Aaron Levinthal, Archaeologist and Lab Director Consultant with the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration, will lead the tours Genesar and the Rackliffe House, two historic sites near Ocean City, focusing on the archaeology and preservation of these buildings and landscapes. Genesar, a privately owned, circa 1730s, Lower Eastern Shore merchant planter’s house is considered to be one of the most important dwellings in the State of Maryland because it includes “hold-over forms of medieval work and the earliest development towards the more formal Georgian ideals in plan and design” (Ridout 1971).Rackliffe, linked to Genesar, is a mid-18th century merchant planter’s dwelling, kitchen and dairy. Archaeology has revealed the locations of outbuildings including a potential kitchen/quarter. The site functions as a small museum that interprets 18th century life in this coastal portion of the state. Light refreshments will be provided on the grounds of Rackliffe House at the end of the tour. Space is limited.


Transportation: Participants will need to provide their own transportation, but carpooling is recommended due to limited parking. Tour participants will depart from the conference hotel at noon.

The Tour is now full.
