A new historic committee in Upper Marlboro saw 20 residents come out to support the group, according to a report in The Gazette.
That's more than most monthly town commissioner meetings, the report said.
According to the Gazette story:
By the end of next year, Germano said the committee wants to see a fully established walking homes tour throughout the town.
She said the tour would involve signs and brochures that provide the history of the homes’ architecture and the lineage of families that stayed in the homes in the 19th century. She said her home was built in the 1830s by a builder who constructed similar homes in her neighborhood.
Kate Germano founded the group after realized there were no historic documents or archives in the town. Upper Marlboro has never had a historic committee.
