Trip Report A Mini-trip to London Town, Maryland

Jump to last reply

The group to which I belong visited the relatively new London Town museum. The town (in Edgewater, Maryland) itself was founded in 1683 and was an early important port in Maryland before Annapolis and Baltimore became more active.

If you haven't visited lately, you may only know the gorgeous William Brown House and maybe the azalea-laden grounds. In the last 15 or so years, archeologists have found the remnants of original buildings and they have been rebuilt to their precise footprints.

The museum is in a separate and new visitor's center and has many interesting and interactive displays. There are also quite a few activities for children.

July 7, 2013 is the date for one of the major events. Volunteers in colonial garb will tell visitors about life in London Town. According to a pamphlet of activities, there will be a summer concert series and 5-day summer camp.

I'll refer you to London Town's site for details. Please note the days the Brown House is open for tours as it is not daily. You can decide if it's worth a day trip for those of you who life in the Md/DC/Va area:
