Historic Marker Sign Unveiling
Anne Arundel County will unveil the first of 9 County Roadside Historic Markers over the Maryland Day Weekend. An unveiling event will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the entrance to Historic Goshen Farm in Cape St Claire at 3 pm. The Board of Directors of the Goshen Farm Preservation Society invites attendees to tour the Goshen Farmhouse and the many interesting features on the grounds starting from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Tours will not be available during the unveiling ceremony.
With nearly 4,000 historic buildings, archaeological sites, historic districts, cemeteries, and heritage communities, the County’s rich history is all around, yet many citizens might not know about or appreciate the history they drive by every day.
This new program, developed by the Office of Planning and Zoning and its Cultural Resources Division, will help raise public awareness about some of the County’s most significant historic sites and enrich citizens’ appreciation of the depth of history that makes up our community. Perhaps it will even encourage them to explore and experience Anne Arundel County’s history!
To learn more about these and other historic sites, explore the County’s Inventory of Historic Properties by visiting www.aacounty.org/CR. The County is excited to select future historic sites for next years’ class of historic markers to recognize and share the rich and diverse history that makes Anne Arundel County the Best Place for All. We hope to see you all there for the unveiling of this historic marker!
