Bainbridge’s Impact on Cecil County Examined in Rising Sun Library Program, Oct. 3

Press Release – Cecil County Public Library

When the US Naval Training Center at Bainbridge opened its doors in 1942, thousands of troops and personnel flowed into Cecil County. Erika Quesenbery, author of “Images of America: United States Naval Training Center, Bainbridge” will explain how the government transformed the campus of a private boys school to a 1200 acre military base which trained 25,000 troops and employed 38,000 at its peak. She’ll discuss the impact this influx of people had on Cecil County as well as the effects when the site closed.

This program will be presented Wednesday, October 3 at 7pm at the Rising Sun Branch Library, 111 Colonial Way, Rising Sun. Call 410-658-4025 to register for this free library program.
