Historic Annapolis to Move Museum Store to 99 Main Street

August 28, 2013 Historic Annapolis President and CEO, Robert C. Clark Mudpie Collection announced that the organization will relocate the Historic Annapolis Museum Store, currently at 77 Main Street in downtown Annapolis, to the first floor of the Historic Annapolis Museum located at 99 Main Street.
 
Mr. Clark stated, "We are excited about the store's new location, not only will we be rolling out new merchandise, but shoppers will have the added advantage of being able to visit our Museum on the second and third floors." The upper levels of 99 Main Street currently house the exhibit Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake.
 
The relocation of the Museum Store to 99 Main Street is part of Historic Annapolis's strategic plan to centralize its museum, retail and programming operations, and keep the organization in a strong financial position.
 
Historic Annapolis has leased the building at 77 Main Street to A&C Outfitter which will be bringing the "sail & trail" theme to Annapolis with a concept shop for Atlantis WeatherGear, a high-end apparel and sportswear company out of Marblehead, Massachusetts.
 
The building at 77 Main Street was built in 1816 and is a rare surviving example of the early 19th-century commercial architecture in Annapolis. Thus, it was critical that Historic Annapolis locate a tenant who will be sensitive to the historic nature of the building. Historic Annapolis will continue to oversee the preservation of the building.
 
Atlantis WeatherGear produces performance apparel and sportswear for all of the things active people do on and around the water. Atlantis is owned and run by passionate sailors, and their designs incorporate a unique combination of no­ compromise performance and style inspired by decades of sailing experience and close collaboration with some of the best sailors in the world. To learn more about Atlantis WeatherGear visit www.atlantisweathergear.com.
 
Our plan is to keep both locations, 77 Main and 99 Main, open until the final move date in late September. Check your emails and follow us on Facebook for updates!

He will be responsible for all aspects of our education mission to include the after-school program, public lectures and programs for both adults and children, and the content of our tours. The second component of his job is to ensure that visitors to our properties consistently have a rich and fulfilling experience. We couldn't have a better person leading the way in these two critical areas.
