The Story Behind Maryland’s Underwater Island Is Truly Heartbreaking
Maryland has dozens of islands, a few of which we’ve previously discussed here. What many Marylanders don’t know is that there are also a few islands that once existed, but due to erosion, now lie in a watery grave in the Chesapeake Bay. Holland Island is one of these fascinating and haunting places. The story behind this underwater island in Maryland will leave you with intrigue and a bit of sadness.
Check out this awe-inspiring video of the history of Holland Island, and the story of one man whose dream it was to restore it. This is a must-watch.
