East Langford Fish Camp
This waterfront retreat was envisioned by its owner to be a collection of buildings with the character of a "camp rooted in the architecture and ambiance (or lack of it) of the Chesapeake waterfront as it looked a hundred years ago... sheds, shanties and arks that shielded sawyers, fisherman, gunners, shuckers and pickers from the elements." Each building uses simple gable, shed and lean-to forms. These simple buildings with their loose arrangement on the site create a complexity similar to the jumble of buildings found along a working waterfront. Found and re-purposed objects - beams, stable doors, corrugated metal, felled and dead trees - speak of this home's love of history and the land.
