- Welcome to the most haunted lighthouse in America. Point Lookout Lighthouse was built between 1828-1830 and marks the entrance to the Potomac River at the Southernmost tip of Maryland’s western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. At the beginning of the Civil War, a hospital was built nearby to care for the Union wounded. By 1863, Confederate prisoners began being held at the hospital and soon a vast prison camp was built, eventually holding 20,000 prisoners. Due to harsh conditions, limited food rations and poor shelter from the elements, over 3,000 prisoners died. No wonder paranormal activity has been detected and several TV shows including Mystery Hunters, Weird Travels and Haunted Lighthouses have dedicated segments to this Lighthouse! #tbt2014 #lighthouse #lighthouse_lovers #lighthouses #lighthousepark #lighthousephoto #lighthousesrule #lighthouselove #lighthouseview #lighthouse_captures #maryland #hauntedlighthouse #paranormal #marylandhistory #civilwar #civilwarhistory #civilwarera #civilwarbuff #civilwarprison #park #parks #loveit❤ #loveithere #loveit #beauty #historicalbuilding #historicalplace #historicalsite #haunted #hauntedplaces

- You goin downey ocean anytime soon? I doubt it in this on and off Maryland weather. But Ocean City has been a Mid Atlantic retreat since the 1870s. Wealthy Washingtonians, Baltimoreans and Philadelphians would take a train into Berlin (eventually there was a station in #oceancity too) and enjoy the briny sea air. Prior to the barrier island being sold off into massive plots to hotels, Ocean City was seen as “The Ladies’ Resort to the Ocean.” Who knew?! The town slowly grew, until the #baybridge opened. Since the 1960s, Ocean City has become Maryland’s beach resort town. Although it definitely looks different now than it did 100 years ago, I bet those elegant ladies knew a thing or two about fun. #oc #marylandhistory #easternshore #ochistory #rodneythelifeguard #nomoreboringvacations #barrierisland

- For this week’s #wcw we’re spotlighting Harriet Chew Carroll, the First Lady of Homewood. Born into a wealthy Philadelphia family, Harriet married the equally privileged Charles Carroll Jr. in 1800. But the marriage, beset by Charles’s alcoholism and abuse, soon deteriorated beyond repair, and the couple permanently separated in 1816. How did Harriet navigate such personal upheaval during a time when so few options were available to women? Find out Thursday, March 15, when historian Mary C. Jeske will present a talk on Harriet in honor of Women’s History Month. Link in bio for tickets! #homewoodmuseum #jhu #baltimore #history #womenshistorymonth #baltimorehistory #marylandhistory

- Welcome to #WPAwednesday! Our new series highlights Maryland records donated to us by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a U.S. federal agency. The WPA hired people across the country in 1935-1942 to systematically collect information about the history of their communities. A good job was hard to find during The Great Depression, so unemployed teachers, librarians, clerical workers, journalists, and photographers among others, were eager to collect information in return for a steady paycheck.  The Historic Records Survey project in Maryland focused on where important document collections throughout the state were kept.  The survey results were painstakingly recorded using hand-written forms and typewriters.  Eventually, the WPA donated records to the new archive (est. 1935) for the State of Maryland called The Hall of Records, which is now called Maryland State Archives. #WPAwednesday #typewriter #handwriting #marylandhistory #archives #NewDeal

- 🎉 We are celebrating 20 years at Hayfield’s this year! Our property is rich with Maryland history, spanning over 200 years. Look for a #throwback picture on the 20th of every month, starting today with our historic mansion. Colonel Nicholas Merryman Bosley was said to have built the Federal-style house over an 8 year period, between 1798-1805. The crystalline marble used to build the residence was quarried from the field in front of the house. After being passed down thru the Merryman/Bosley families, the historic building was refurbished in 1939. The inside and outside of our Mansion is still full of character, from the original wood floors to the inscriptions on window panes by the Merryman children from 1895 #hayfieldscountryclub #huntvalley #maryland #marylandhistory #hayfieldshistory 📷 credit: The Library of Congress
