Ward Brothers Decoys come to Core Sound
Lem and Steve Ward of Crisfield, MD, collectively known as the Ward Brothers, are arguably some of the most recognized decoy makers in the world. From humble beginnings as barbers and carvers, they rose in prominence and artistic skill to not only produce decoys but poetry and flat works of art.
Early carvings from the Ward Brothers Decoy collection from the Ward Museum in Salisbury, MD are currently on display at the CSWM&HC.
