The Gilbert Byron House
Following Byron’s death in 1991, the cabin where he had lived and worked for 45 years on Old House Cove was saved from destruction thanks to the efforts of Historic St. Michaels – Bay Hundred, the Talbot County Board of Education, and Pickering Creek Audubon Center. After a three year journey, it was relocated to Pickering Creek where it is undergoing preservation and restoration.
The Gilbert Byron house contains artifacts relating to Byron and his lifestyle and serves as a classroom for outdoor education, literature, and writing programs for the community.
The house is located on the grounds of Pickering Creek Audubon Center and is open year round to the public during daylight hours. It is near the Center’s walking trail. Visitors are welcome to come in and look around. Please sign the guestbook!
