Imagine a light spring breeze blowing across the Little Elk Creek as picnickers enjoy a lunch and kids pass a football over head. The air is warm and the living is easy at Historic Elk Landing. It’s not a mirage, it’s May first, the first Saturday of the month and the Landing is open for your relaxation and leisure. The gates open at 10 a.m. and will remain open until 2 in the afternoon. In addition to the grounds, which will be open for walking, examining the plants and wildlife, picnicking, sports, etc, you may also catch a glimpse of a War of 1812 Cecil Militia member, cleaning his musket, pitching his tent, or making his own lunch. If you ask, he may even share his stories from the War that came to Elkton’s door step back in 1813 when the British attempted to burn the town, but were fought off by the brave Elktonian defenders.
Whatever your desire: learning, leisure, or both, Historic Elk Landing is the place to be on Saturday, May first, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
