New Chesapeake City Town Hall Employee Hired

A message from Tonya Lockwood:

tonyalockwoodHello! My name is Tonya Lockwood and starting Tuesday, October 11th I will be replacing Mary Elizabeth Cooper as the Receptionist/Water & Sewer Billing Clerk at the Town Hall of Chesapeake City. I am a lifelong resident of Chesapeake City and I am excited to begin my new journey right here in my hometown. I've been married to my husband, Chuck, for 18 years, and he has coached numerous youth sports teams for our community. We both graduated from Bohemia Manor High School and began to create our life together in Chesapeake City. We have 2 children - an 18 year old son, Zack, and a 17 year old daughter, Zoë. Zack is a freshman at Towson University studying Music Education and plans to teach in Cecil County after graduation. Zoë is a senior at Bohemia Manor and plans to play softball and study Business with a focus in Accounting at Goldey Beacom College next year. My family takes great pride in calling Chesapeake City our home. We love attending all of the High School sporting events during the school year, and eating dinner at the Chesapeake City Little League Field during the ball season. The closeness of this community is something you don't get everywhere. Our hometown is by far the best! I can't wait to meet everyone! See you at Town Hall!

This extraordinary gem of a museum traces the history of the world’s third busiest shipping canal.  The museum is in its second season of being available to the public on the weekends and seasonal visitors to Chesapeake City are excited to be able to tour the facility and enjoy the waterfront park-like setting.

Owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, this waterfront historic site is located inside the original 18th century pump house that once controlled the water levels in the locks along the first edition of the canal. Interactive displays, fascinating videos and more enchant visitors of all ages.

These special weekend hours are made possible through sponsorships by the Chesapeake Inn and Marina,  Schaefers Restaurant and Canal Bar, The Bayard House, and the Town of Chesapeake City.  Representatives from the staffs of restaurants are the Museum hosts on the weekends.
