At the top of this blog (the pages section) you will find a new heading called ”Shore Blogging.” I’ve added that component to help readers navigate around a number of our history-related weblogs I’m publishing. These sites, sharing postings about the past on Delmarva, include one on Cecil County, another on the larger peninsula and one that shares old Delmarva photos. These three Internet products join an advocacy weblog called “Someone Noticed.” It has as a concentration the “411 on the Mayor and Commissioners of the Town of Elkton.” The site was launched when the Town of Elkton planned to sell 10 acres of park land to a developer, though they had just purchased the land 3 years earlier with state aid and had said it was a critical acquisition. About a month ago they abandoned that attempt, but we’ll continue to post things related to the 411 on Elkton on this site, as well as pieces on preservation advocacy, since three is so much that isn’t covered by local papers.
Readers around the Peninsula may find the history blogs to be of interest.
