Jo Ann Examines the Bitterly Cold Winter of 1852 in this Video Presentation

Jo Ann Gardner works on a research project.

Jo Ann Gardner, one of our volunteers, has been producing brief videos of Cecil County history to share with our audience.  Since we are presently in the middle of a polar vortex that is creating some frigid January nights, she thought this one would be appropriate as the weather brought to mind the winter of 1852.  That year so long ago, the Susquehanna and the Chesapeake Bay froze over and the thermometer plummeted to minus seven degrees in Elkton.  Enjoy this flashback in time.
