Hitting the Streets in Elkton
We are busy transforming the Society from a well-resourced research library and small museum into an institution that offers a broader array of history related programming and makes our institution an important cultural part of Cecil County and downtown Elkton. We opened the door on this new era for our institution about a year-and-a-half ago, when our board put in motion a revised strategic plan. Part of this plan calls for hitting the streets with walking tours, which explore the rich history and heritage of the community. Well we were busy focusing on that aspect of our enhnacement process Saturday for we first hit the streets with members of Girl Scout Troop 174. After that group of wonderful young ladies finished seeing the Reverend Duke’s Log House and much more, we had others. One group was off to the Elkton Cemetery for a walking through the old burial ground, and another cluster of visitors walked down Main Street, to hear about the fascinating past right here. If you’re interested in a walking tour of Elkton, e-mail us and we’ll set something up for you. Check back often for updates on how we're continuing to progress, including news about our next series of fascinating living history programs.
