Goshen Farm – Annapolis
The Goshen Farm Preservation Society, Inc. was established in 2006 to safeguard and restore the historic Goshen Farm and its surrounding property. Buildings at Goshen Farm include the Goshen Farm House, the Tenant’s Cottage, the Servant’s Quarters, and a Milk House.
Historic Linthicum Walks – Crofton
On the National Register of Historic Places since 1984, Historic Linthicum Walks is a traditional, whitewashed farm house and grounds dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It sits in a picturesque park-like setting among a variety of mature trees and gardens with architecture representative of the rural Tidewater Maryland style of its time.
The Kuethe Library – Glen Burnie
The Kuethe Library was built in 1932 by the Kuethe family as a public library for the citizens of the Glen Burnie area. Although specializing in Anne Arundel County and Maryland material, its holdings encompass material from many other states. In addition to over 4,000 books, the collection includes manuscripts, maps, photographs, genealogical, biographical and subject files.
Odenton Heritage Society – Odenton
The mission of the Odenton Heritage Society is to preserve, promote and protect the history and traditions of Odenton, Maryland. Odenton stands as a prime example of the role that railroads played in creating vibrant communities in the United States. Today, evidence of that rich history remains in older homes, churches, and businesses in Odenton’s historic district.
Waterworks Park – Annapolis
Waterworks Park is a recreational area operated by the City of Annapolis and managed by the City’s Recreation and Parks Department. The 600-acre park is one of the few open space resources in the Annapolis area that provides the public with hiking, biking, a place to picnic and fish. There are miles of nature trails and a picnic pavilion.
