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.
