Abstract

The Poquoson Museum project is the realization of a dream conceived by numerous community residents who wished to preserve Poquoson’s unique heritage.

The museum purchased a 15 acre farm, the Dryden Farm, and salt marsh where they sought to create a museum campus, a marsh trail and Back River overlook, and various other interpretative opportunities.

CDAC assisted the Poquoson Museum in their master planning process to site and develop a conceptual design for the Great Marsh Experience Trail and Back River Overlook. This trail would guide visitors along Topping Creek Marsh and feature interpretative signs detailing march wildlife and fauna that the visitors can observe and will culminate in a raised wooden overlook platform providing a panoramic view of Topping Creek and the Back River.
