If you’re looking for fireworks, marching bands, or displays of military might, you won’t find them at Historic Elk Landing this Independence Day weekend. Nope, not a one. But you will find rest and relaxation! How’s that as a way to spend a day away from the grind of work and daily routines?
On Saturday, July 3rd from 10 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon, the Historic Elk Landing Foundation houses and grounds will be open for tours, picnicking, walks, exploration of the fauna, enjoying a cool breeze off the Little Elk Creek, throwing a Frisbee or football, or any of a number of relaxing, restful ways to spend a lazy summer afternoon in Elkton.
Our friendly and informed tour guides will gladly take you through the Hollingsworth House and the ancient Stone House. They’ll tell you about the folks who lived there since the late 18th century, and even about some of the events that played a major role in our American Revolution such as the British Invasion of 1777 which led to the Battle of the Brandywine and George Washington’s march through Elk Landing in 1781 on his way to victory at Yorktown, Virginia.
So if you’re looking for a place to reflect on the meaning and impact of Independence Day, a place to enjoy our freedoms with family and friends, then Historic Elk Landing is your place, at the foot of Landing Lane in Elkton, just south of Route 40. Admission is free. For more information, please contact the Historic Elk Landing Foundation at 410-620-6400 and leave a voice message. We will return your call.
