- 🍂Happy fall, everyone! This is what it will look like in a few weeks on Queens Chapel Road in the University Park Historic District in Maryland. This section of Queen's Chapel (the town's main thoroughfare) is lined with some beautiful, mature maple trees that provide amazing shade in the summer, and a brilliant golden canopy in the fall. Behind them are two contributing structures to the historic district, two Colonial Revival houses, built circa 1937. Granted, they're a little hard to see, but they exemplify one of the four major styles in the district, which also includes Tudor Revival, Bungalow/Craftsman, and Mission/Spanish Colonial Revival. The district developed between 1920 and 1950 as an automobile suburb on agricultural land as the western edge of Prince George's County transformed from agricultural use to a suburban extension of the D.C. metropolitan area. The first land patent in what would later become the Town of University Park was called Edmonston's Pasture, in 1723. In 1759, much of this land became property of William Deakins, patriarch of the Deakins family, who was involved in the land transactions that lead to the establishment of the District of Columbia. His son, Leonard, was a Colonel in the Revolutionary War, and is buried in a small historic family cemetery in town. Photo by @daniel_tana

- HELP 🆘! Opinion needed from my fellow historic home restoration junkies...or anyone really. This is our main fireplace in the dining room/kitchen. We are trying to decide if we want to rip up and replace these original 200 yr old crumbling bricks with bricks salvaged from a farmhouse most likely built around the same time period which sadly was recently destroyed. We (or more often just I) keep myself up at night worrying about making sure everything is perfect and kept original but these are really just turning into dust so we're torn! We will have to use the salvaged bricks to fix any of the wall bricks once we remove all the plaster to expose the brick (OMG I cannot wait 😍) and start repointing the entire wall. Part of the hearth appears to be sinking but we don't see any evidence of such from the cellar so not really sure what's going on there! Should we just leave the hearth as it is or replace?! #farmhousefollowfriday#farmhousestyle#farmhouserestoration#americanrestoration#farmhousebrick#farmhousevintage#farmhouserustic#mdhistory#countryliving#allthefarmhousefeels @devlinpro #stonehouserevival

- A little taste of history at @omg_umd. This cash register on display belonged to the historic Belvedere Hotel in #Baltimore, a Beaux Arts style building built in 1902-1903 which was converted into condominiums in 1991. Fitting for a restaurant based in a hotel! The Old Maryland Grill is now open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. #hyattsville #artsdistricthyattsville #hyattsvillehistoricdistrict #oldmaryland #mdfood #mdhistory #dcfood #dining #rt1eats #mtrainiermd #brentwoodmd #bladensbergmd #rt1corridor #collegeparkmd #universityparkmd #riverdaleparkmd #greenbeltmd #beltsvillemd #umd #pgcounty

- Mike Franklin's new restaurant Old Maryland Grill @omg_umd officially opened on Friday at the Hotel at the University of Maryland in College Park! It features a number of signature dishes from around Maryland. The owner of @franklinsbrewery talked with the Hyattsville Wire about the two and a half years of research he spent building the menu. Appetizers include coddies, deep-fried balls of codfish and potatoes served between two saltine crackers with mustard which were first sold by Jewish immigrants from pushcarts in Baltimore in the 1900s. (The saltines and mustard will be made in-house.) Alongside deviled crab and an Amish cheese board on the starters menu is smoked beet kitfo, a variation of a popular Ethiopian dish that is a nod to the sizable immigrant population in Maryland. The lunch menu includes St. Mary’s County Stuffed Ham, a classic dish from Southern Maryland whose origins are shrouded in mystery. The restaurant will also serve 24 beers and 16 wines from around Maryland. Local spirits will be used in all crab cocktails and the dishes are all served with a focus on authenticity. “Nobody wants a deconstructed crab cake,” Franklin said. #hyattsville #artsdistricthyattsville #hyattsvillehistoricdistrict #oldmaryland #mdfood #mdhistory #dcfood #dining #rt1eats #mtrainiermd #brentwoodmd #bladensbergmd #rt1corridor #rt1art #collegeparkmd #universityparkmd #riverdaleparkmd #greenbeltmd #beltsvillemd #umd #pgcounty #pgcounty #riverdaleparkstation
