A LIFE BUILT AROUND OYSTERS:

The Curleys

Few families in Colonial Beach are more identified with making a living from the nearby waters of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay than the Curleys.

Landon Curley, who founded the Curley Packing Company in 1932, “loved oysters,” says his son Rusty. “That was his thing. He’d see oyster boats lined up in the creek [Monroe Bay] and nothing looked any better to him.”

At one time the boats lined up in droves, side by side, so close together you could walk across the water by hopping from one deck to the next, Rusty and others recall about the heyday of oystering in the 1950s.
