LORE OYSTER HOUSE DAYS
Come learn everything you want to know about oysters! Join us for Lore Oyster House Days on Saturdays, June 25, July 16, and August 20 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the J.C. Lore & Sons oyster house in Solomons. FREE program.
Travel back in time to the days when the J.C. Lore & Sons oyster house was a thriving oyster packing house. Meet the skimmer, who tracks how many pints are shucked and what the shuckers should be paid. Tie on an apron, become a shucker and experience the challenges and rewards of a piecework wage earner. Along the way, try your hand at oyster tonging; learn to tie a tow line and coil a rope; measure oysters with a special tool; and follow the path an oyster takes through the packing house from unloading at the dock to the shipping room.
