I live not far from here. For the last 10 years or so, I have watched the progress of this site. So much Maryland [and National] history is here, that I am surprised that it doesn't get more attention.
A new interpretive and visitor center was built a few years ago. Many very dedicated volunteers work in the gardens as well as the historic site to uncover important secrets. They have a great Junior Docent program that encourages young people to become involved in historic sites. Several programs are available for home-schooled students (too many?), as well as other programs for teachers to bring their students from public and private local schools. When I was a girl scout leader, we took our girls here for a tour. I think they could come up with many more public events than the 'standard' musket-firings and plant sales for the general public..
Historic Annapolis is clearly better supported by it's neighbors, and better programs are available for the traveling public there. I hope that the State of Maryland will recognize this gem on the South River and encourage the efforts of the Anne Arundel County volunteers who keep the place alive and have pushed it to become a serious tourist destination for people interested in history. PLEASE support Historic London Town and don't let it disappear again!
