The event last evening was truly befitting the accomplishments of so many persons who have dedicated themselves to bringing the Havre de Grace story of May 1813 to life. A hearty congratulations to our museums, the National Park Service, the HdG Office of Tourism and to all those who have, once again, shown Havre de Grace to be such a special place and deserving of recognition.
