Jo Ann Gardner, one of our volunteers, has been producing brief videos of Cecil County history to share with our audience. Since we are presently in the middle of a polar vortex that is creating some frigid January nights, she thought this one would be appropriate as the weather brought to mind the winter of 1852. That year so long ago, the Susquehanna and the Chesapeake Bay froze over and thermometer plummeted to minus seven degrees in Elkton. Enjoy this flashback in time.
The area is still recovering from the storm and frigid conditions overnight have resulted in refreezing on area roadways. Also schools have a delayed opening. Thus the Society will be closed today.
The Society is closed Monday, January 20, 2014 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
