Stories and Postcards from US Route 1

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Sponsored by the Friends of Montpelier

Do you know the history of iconic U.S. Route 1? Historians Richard Friend and Aaron Marcavitch join forces to share vintage postcards and the local history of Route 1 (presented by Richard Friend). Connecting residential communities and commercial crossroads, Route 1 has spanned three centuries of transportation, communication, and development, touching all areas of the region between these two major cities. Aaron’s and Richard’s books, Postmark Laurel and US Route 1: Baltimore to Washington D.C., respectively, will also be for sale.
