Jack Broderick takes guides viewers to the various heritage sites and markers around the Kent Narrows Area. Historically, the Kent Narrows is known as a place central to facilitating trade and a key link to the region’s transportation networks. It’s a place where those whose sustenance depended upon the water worked, traveled through and raised their families. Today the region continues to directly support hundreds of water-related businesses and is rich with maritime heritage. So much has occurred in this place it is hard to condense it all into a few stories.
