Hundreds of visitors came to Hampton this past weekend to witness the very talented ensemble of sophomore students, led by Production Coordinator Norah Worthington, as they presented Finding the Story: Confronting the Past. This consisted of three short plays - Voices, The Gardens, and Historic Preservation - that provided insight into the backstories at Hampton through the centuries, and included reenactments based actual historical documentation of the Ridgely family and their workforce. Kudos to all for doing a tremendous job of taking us back in time with the hope of understanding the complexities of relationships that are still with us today. As we celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service it is a great time to look at what we have chosen to preserve, and how much we can still discover when we look with the eyes of the next generation.
The National Park Service will host a public Open House to share information and ideas regarding the potential for Emerald Ash Borer at Hampton National Historic Site. The Open House will be held in the Orangery at the park (535 Hampton Lane, Towson, MD 21286) on Wednesday, March 23rd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Representatives from Federal, State and local agencies and organizations will be available to discuss potential options to manage impacts of the Emerald Ash Borer on trees in and around the park, and how it might affect park resources, including the historic landscape.
