Fun Fact

The world's largest man-made oyster reef was created in Maryland.

Due to overfishing and disease, the oyster population in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay was seriously suffering. But thanks to dedicated work by scientists at the Horn Point Laboratory, the Army Corps, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Nature Conservancy, the state is now the location of the world's largest man-made oyster reef. Home to more than one billion oysters, the area is a no-fishing zone, which will hopefully give the population a chance to recover.


History Fact

People were buried alive so often, that bells were attached to their coffins.

Due to medicine not being so great, comatose people were sometimes mistakenly buried alive.


In order to counteract these potential blunders, people were buried with little bells above ground. These bells were attached to a string, which went into the coffin.


If the person was buried alive, and later woke up they would tug on the string that would ring the bell above ground.


Someone would hear it and then dig the person out of their premature resting place.
