Four Rivers: The Heritage Area of Annapolis, London Town and South County is a proud sponsor of the 7th Annual Maryland Day Celebration. Throughout the weekend, historical, cultural, and natural resources sites in Annapolis and southern Anne Arundel County will open their doors to the public with special tours, events, and programming for $1.00 or less. For more information on the all the participating heritage sites and their activities visit: www.marylandday.org.
Visit the Galesville Heritage Museum and explore local and South County history. Learn about the people who built the framework for the Galesville village as we know it today, and who would lay the foundation for the surrounding area. Search through videos, oral histories, photos, artifacts, and the enlightening “Stories of Stores” videos. Local historians will be onsite to answer questions on our Indian artifacts, Steward Shipyard and Tulip Hill artifacts.
For young people:
Discover archaeology in your own backyard! In this hands-on program, participants become “Archaeologists-in-Training” by excavating a chocolate chip cookie, piecing together broken plates, and examining trash to learn about how people lived. The tools used by archaeologists will be discussed and examined, and archaeological methods used to discover what might be hidden under the surface of your backyard.
