A Different Look

Not so long ago, more people arrived in Mathews by boat than by car. It was a place where boats were built, farmers planted large fields and fisherman, crabbers and oysterman went out early each day in their boats. There were more schools and more country stores and grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins all lived close together. How would you describe Mathews today? What has changed? What is happening in the world that may be why life in Mathews is different? Perhaps pictures tell a better story than words so let’s take a look at the past and then talk about the present.
