Located a short distance from Havre de Grace is the Perry Point VA medical center. The primary function of the Perry Point VA is treatment of mental health. The hospital was created in 1919 and has evolved over the years to the significant role it now provides veterans. Living in Havre de Grace I can see the hospital from my house and have visited the campus on several occasions. The facility sits on land located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay providing visitors with extraordinary views of the areas local beauty. Some of the property was sold over to the local town of Perryville to create Perry Point Community Park. Situated on the old property, which is now a park, is a thick wooded area that is home to some astonishing historical documentation.
