Inunder President Jimmy Carter, the month of June was dedicated to celebrating and appreciating the work of Black musicians in the United States. While Black Music Appreciation Month began in thes, Black musicians have made major strides in the music industry throughout all of U.
As work on the Jonathan Street cabin progresses and the once-stripped structure gradually forms into a cozy abode, it seems appropriate to reflect on those who once called home. While not everyone left their marks on the dwelling like H. Inthe English and Susquehannock Indians ed a treaty for the area and the county was officially formed in from the eastern part of Baltimore County. The Town of Havre de Grace was established in and laid out in a grid pattern modeled after Philadelphia with Revolutionary and French names. It was incorporated in — making it the oldest municipality in Maryland after Annapolis.
Most of the downtown is a National Historic District.
We, of course, stopped first at both a bakery and then a coffee shop, Grolls Bakery and Java by the Bayto fuel our morning. We followed parts of the Lafayette Traila self-guided walking tour, marked in the sidewalk by a fleur-de-lis symbol. It was fun to find the symbols and use the mobile app to about each stop along the way.
In honor of Lafayette, we could not resist the macarons at Les Petits Bisous and a long conversation with the owner. We decided we needed more coffee before we left town and found ourselves captivated by both the owner and the place he has created in Concord Point Coffee.
From the adaptive reuse of an old building, a stained glass mural in the bathroom that one of the staff painted, and a post-it-note question of the day for all to participate in, this is a fun community hangout and place for good coffee. A few wrong turns and we ended up in a park operated by Excelon, but open to the public so you can see the dam close up.
I had to agree that it was a pretty cool side trip. The dam was built between and and became the second largest hydroelectric project in the United States, behind Niagara Falls.
Despite coffee, baked goods and macarons, we head straight to lunch at a hopping place in Bel Air, Vagabond Sandwich Company. To the open road, new adventures, new people, new places, and of course…a good sandwich! We used the self-guided historic walking tour of downtown to find some of the interesting buildings, including the Harford County Courthousebuilt in There are a of buildings around Courthouse Square that have survived through adaptive reuse, including a pretty Beaux Art bank building.
There are also a of fun shops to explore, including The Nest on Main. Again, we are lucky enough to meet the owners and talk to them about our adventure. One last thing we went to find is The Hays House Museum.
It is the oldest house in Bel Air, built in It was saved, moved to its present site in and turned into a museum. Interestingly enough, one of the beers is named Preservationmade from Hopkins Farm hops and barley and in partnership with the Harford Land Trust. We thought we would at least drive by on our way home, and they were closed for the season.
However, as this is horse country, we took a turn and drove by the Elkridge Hunt Club.
It seemed as though the horses did not think much of us and were not very interested in having their picture taken for our little adventure, so we called it a day. Meet Our Team.Black Havre de Grace Maryland looking someone to hang out with
