Bill Mich Talks About Delmarva Islands Being Washed Away – Friday, Nov. 6, 2015
Holland Island was once home to 300 people and now there are barely any signs of life. Bill Mich tells us more about how Holland Island is basically eroding away. Steven owned the island and tried to save the island from washing away, but then he became ill and now the island continues to wash away.
The Dorchester County Historical Society has tons of pictures and stories of how the island used to flourish. Bill says there are still some houses from Holland Island still on Delmarva. When people moved off of the island, they took their houses apart, put them on a barge, and then built them back up on new land.
The 3-day series on Holland Island begins Nov. 10 at 6 p.m.
