Overview

E. James Tull's innate artistic talent, his caring, nurturing personality, his mechanical skills and attention to detail advanced him from apprentice to owner of the shipyard, and from a young man fixing the drawbridge to town councilman and Pocomoke Mayor. Valuing diversity and quality, E. James Tull designed and constructed 200 of the most exquisite bateaux, pleasure yachts, master sailing ships and steamers on the East Coast.
E. James Tull's reputation as a shipbuilder brought merchants from other states to Tull Shipyard in Pocomoke City for the finest quality yachts, fishing, and work boats and established a shipping and steamboat schedule to and from Pocomoke City. By 1920, $1,000,000 of produce and $1,600,000 of seafood shipped from Pocomoke annually.
Artisan, shipbuilding magnate, mayor, husband, and father, E. James Tull made Pocomoke City a commercially successful seaport. He left a legacy of ships, history, wisdom, and inspiration to his family, his citizens, and his merchants, which inspires the economic development of the Pocomoke historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.
A new way to enjoy the Maryland beach, Pocomoke on Marylandâ??s Eastern Shore, a once charming and commercially successful seaport, is revitalizing into a delightful historic town. Pocomoke is minutes from the Ocean City beach resort, the Assateague National Seashore Wildlife Refuge, and Wallops Island, home of the National Aeronautic and Space Administration, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The relaxed family atmosphere, the freshest area seafood year round at reasonable prices, and the mild climate and the tranquil Pocomoke River with abundant wildlife and natural resources make Pocomoke City a great place to live or vacation.
â??Lavishly illustrated and superbly researched, Pat Martin successfully blends rich Pocomoke history with a modern day snapshot of the bustling Eastern Shore Community.â?
---Eric Wargotz, M.D., President, Queen Anne County Commissioners, Maryland
