The center is located on land acquired by the County in 1982 from the Weiskittel and Zelinski families. The area around Marshy Point has a rich tradition of waterfowl hunting, and President Benjamin Harrison, Babe Ruth, and Annie Oakley all hunted here.
The development of Maryland’s state dog, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, took place at the Marshy Point Ducking Club and winter still brings rafts of ducks, geese, and tundra swans to area creeks. Fishermen have long explored the waters around Marshy Point in search of rockfish, chain pickerel, perch, catfish, and blue crabs.
