Growing Up on Tilghman

  • Aired: 04/25/2014

Not so long ago, Tilghman Island was a unique Chesapeake waterman's community with few amenities and no fences; where children roamed freely and families bonded together to wrest a living from the bountiful but challenging bay. Island residents recall their unique heritage and discuss the challenges of sharing it with future generations.
