Explore the history of Harford County.
The Historical Society of Harford County will open its doors on January 18 to share it rich collections detailing the history of the county. Several authors of our Bulletins will be on hand to discuss and answer questions about their bulletins with subjects like; Harford in the Civil War; Tidewater Canal; Bridges, Churches, Barns and Rail Roads; The Booths of Harford County; Desegregation of Harford’s Public Schools; Biographical studies of prominent citizens and Horse Racing in Havre de Grace and Bel Air.
The bulletins are in-depth studies of individual subjects thoroughly researched and documented. Joe Swisher will be there to discuss and review his excellent
video series ‘Historic Harford” a series that uses oral history to bring interesting Harford County subjects to life. The Society has an extensive collection of photos of Harford County dating back decades. If you are looking for a specific photo or subject, want something to decorate your business or just enjoy old photos this display will meet your needs. Finally, we will have displays of Playbills from Booth Family performances, local artwork by Vaughn Flannery and large hanging posters that provide thumbnail sketches of the culture, economy and history of Harford County. This event is free to the public. 11 am-3pm
