About Morattico Waterfront Museum:

?A Hidden Treasure Full of History in a Waterfront Village

The Morattico Waterfront Museum in the heart of the watermen’s village on the north shore of the Rappahannock River with commanding views of the river, Lancaster Creek and Mulberry Bay. The village takes it name from the Moraughtacund Indians of the Algonquian Nation encountered in the area by Captain John Smith in 1608.

Artifacts, photos and documents related to activities in a working watermen’s settlement and the function of the general store are being preserved to honor the past and educate new generations.
