Historic Marker Sign Unveiling

3/16/20 UPDATE: The Maryland Day event planners are now canceling all events. We are canceling the Unveiling Ceremony that was scheduled for March 21st. We hope that life resumes as normal by April 25th for our Open House and hope to hold the unveiling at that time. Please stay well!

3/12/20 UPDATE: As of today, Maryland Day organizers are not canceling any events due to the Coronavirus, but they are closely watching the situation and will adjust our plans and recommendations based upon any new information provided by government officials.

Reasonable advice is that people who are sick should stay home and that everyone else should wash their hands thoroughly and frequently, avoid touching their faces without first washing their hands, and be mindful of what and whom can be touched in public situations.

Anne Arundel County will unveil the first of 9 County Roadside Historic Markers over the Maryland Day Celebration Weekend. An unveiling event will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the entrance to Historic Goshen Farm & Education Center in Cape St Claire at 3 pm. The Board of Directors of the Goshen Farm Preservation Society invites attendees to tour the Goshen Farm House 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.

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!

With nearly 4,000 historic buildings, archaeological sites, historic districts, cemeteries, and heritage communities, the County’s rich history surrounds all of us. However, many citizens might not know about or appreciate the history they drive by every day.

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!
