Learn about the days, not that long ago, when Baltimore & Annapolis Boulevard was a mud and oyster shell road and everyone, including children, owned a horse to navigate the only path between the two cities. In 1928 an amusement park was built on the Magothy River that featured a roller coaster over the water and an alligator exhibit.
The dinner is open to the public. Tickets are $40.00 per person and may be obtained from Lillian Malkus, Dinner Chair, telephone (410)-974-6850. More information may be obtained from the Society’s website; www.aachs.org.
