St. Michaels Points of Interest On the broad Miles River, with her picturesque tree-lined streets and beautiful landlocked harbor, St. Michaels has been a haven for boats plying the Chesapeake and its inlets since the earliest days. Here, some of the handsomest models of the bay craft, such as canoes, bugeyes, pungys and some famous Baltimore Clippers, were designed and built. The Church, named “St. Michael’s,” was the first building erected (about 1677) and around it clustered the town that took its name. Today the shipyards are still active, and the harbor is used by oystermen, fishermen, clammers and pleasure seekers in large numbers. 1.
