The Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company, Inc. began operating in 2005 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization to preserve, interpret and support industrial maritime heritage efforts in the Chesapeake Bay Region. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
The B&CSC traces its roots back to its members’ long-standing efforts to preserve the last coal-fired steam tug in American, the 1906 tug BALTIMORE. The BALTIMORE is owned and maintained by the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
B&CSC acquired its first historic vessel in 2011, the 1940 M/V CHARLES D. GAITHER. The GAITHER is the first all-steel vessel in the Baltimore City Police Department’s municipal fleet and is a wonderful gift of Mr. & Mrs. Vernon Johnson.
The organization is active in participating and sponsoring a variety of events, lectures, and programs. There is something here for everyone. We are an all-volunteer group that Goes Places and Does Things!
