The Historic Elk Landing Foundation will throw open the gates and unlock the doors to Historic Elk Landing for a summer season of leisure and learning at the ancient site.
Beginning on Saturday, May 1st and continuing every first Saturday of the month through September 4th, Historic Elk Landing will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for strolling the 44 acres, picnicking on one of the foundation’s picnic tables or your own blanket, examining the plants and wildlife, throwing a ball or Frisbee around our acres of open fields, or doing a whole lot of nothin’, just taking in the sites and sounds of a Cecil County summer season down by Little Elk Creek.
In addition, the foundation will offer some learning experiences for young and old alike. Some of the first Saturdays will feature War of 1812 Cecil Militia encampments, archeological explorations, tours of the Hollingsworth House, the newly stabilized Stone House, plus the grounds around them that have seen three invasions by the British, one tour by Captain John Smith of Jamestown fame, and a shipping business, sometimes referred to as the “UPS” of colonial America!
The Foundation is also looking beyond the summer and into the fall with a search for real ghosts in October, and in December, a celebration of the Christmas season with live music, seasonal refreshments, and more.
It will be a busy summer at Elk Landing, but a relaxing one too. Check us out!! See the web site at www.elklanding.org for more information.
