Hopi House has been selling authentic American Indian arts and crafts to visitors since the Fred Harvey Company opened its doors in 1905. It is a large, multi-story building of stone masonry, shaped and built like a Hopi pueblo. The main shopping area resides on the first floor, and offers a tempting array of authentic artwork and crafts. The second floor now houses a gallery, which includes works by relatives of Nampeyo, a famous potter who would give demonstrations at Hopi House during its early years.

The Last Sinking House on Holland Island

The Last Sinking House on Holland Island

The tale of the house and the man illustrates the Chesapeake’s problem with rising oceans and sinking land. Holland Island reached its peak population between 1890 and 1910. By 1910 approximately 360 people lived on the distinct ridges of high ground. Sea levels in the Chesapeake, scientists say, are rising faster than they are in some other coastal regions of the United States. The land here has been slowly sinking for thousands of years, settling itself from bulges created by the weight of Ice Age glaciers. The weight of glaciers to the north pushed the Earth’s crust down, and the crust in this area went up like the other end of a see-saw Holland Island started to noticeably lose shoreline in 1914. The residents tried desperately to save their island by importing stones to build walls and in some cases sinking boats in an attempt to slow the erosion, but all attempts failed.
