Located on the banks of the historic Susquehanna Flats, the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum houses one of the finest collections of working and decorative Chesapeake Bay decoys ever assembled.

Havre de Grace Maritime Museum

The Havre de Grace Maritime Museum, situated where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay, tells the story of this region's rich maritime heritage. Teaming with numerous species of flora and fauna and having highly navigable waters, made this unique environmental setting the perfect backdrop for generations of inhabitants- from the earliest Native Americans over 10,000 years ago, to the first European colonists in the 1600's, to today's thriving community of the 21st century. In 1782, the Marquis de Lafayette is said to have looked down over the town as he rode along the Post Road and commented that it was a charming Havre de Grace. Founded by a historically-minded group of local citizens, the Havre de Grace Maritime Museum was incorporated in 1988 as a private, not-for-profit, educational institution dedicated to the collection, documentation, preservation, and interpretation of the maritime skills and heritage of the Lower Susquehanna River and Upper Chesapeake Bay.

Herring Run Park

The lovely 300-acre Herring Run Park winds through the Belair-Edison neighborhood of northeast Baltimore, straddling the Herring Run stream. The park offers a respite for many, featuring open fields, mature trees, a flowing stream, winding paved paths perfect for hiking, biking, rollerblading, and a mix of playing fields. For many urbanites, the park is not only a pleasant view, but a convenient area to walk their pets, meet neighbors and friends, or stroll alone, lost in personal daydreams.

Dogs (and their owners) find plenty of woods to explore and fields to romp in-not to mention other dogs to socialize with. No wonder Herring Run is considered the dog-friendliest park in the city.

The maples, sassafras, hawthorns, and maidenhair provide a green respite in the heat of summer, while Rose of Sharon, chicory, and aster add splashes of colorful blooms. After a snowfall, the park becomes an enchanting winter wonderland-and ideal sledding spot.

The park is home to two monuments, one honoring Christopher Columbus (at Harford Road and Parkside Drive), another honoring war veterans (at Belair Road and Shannon Drive). Both sites include flower gardens that are maintained by resident volunteers.

Leakin Park

Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park constitutes one of the largest municipal tracts in the United States and is a distinctive natural environment within a highly urban setting. Originally conceived as a stream valley park by the Olmsted Brothers in their 1904 Plan for the City of Baltimore, it was suggested that by associating the larger Gwynns Falls watershed with the stream valley that the entire area could be protected from the pressures of future development. The Crimea Estate, the summer home of 19th century industrialist Thomas Winans, is now included within the boundaries of Leakin Park. Set in a natural rolling woodlands with a large oak grove, the estate had many interesting structures that still stand today. The Italienate stone mansion (Oreanda) is currently used by the Parks and People Foundation and for park offices and recreational programs (1982), but the stone stable/carriage house, gothic chapel, caretaker's house, water wheel, and "mock" fort are still available for visitors to study.
