Highlighting Eastport on the African-American Heritage Trail
Four Rivers Heritage Area is proud to be a funding sponsor of the new “African-American Voices, Memories, and Places: A Four Rivers Heritage Trail”. Our creative partners at “Annapolis Discovered” recently created a post highlighting communities along the trail, called “Walking the Block.” It highlights familiar and iconic places in Eastport along Chester Avenue, past and present, such as Davis’ Pub, McNasby’s Seafood and Mike’s Groceries.
Did you know that Davis’ Pub started out as Davis Confectionary and later Davis Tavern? This building has served the community since 1986 as Davis’ Pub. It is one of several businesses and dozens of properties owned by George Washington Davis, Eastport’s most important African American Entrepreneur. Today, it currently serves one of the best crab cakes you can get in town.
