Four Kiosks Delve into the War of 1812 Story on the Upper Chesapeake

Kiosk located on the Sassafras River, the Kent/Cecil County border, describing the burning of Fredericktown and Georgetown.

With kiosks about the War of 1812 popping up all around the Upper Chesapeake, we checked out two more this afternoon.  They’re helping the public delve into the history of this conflict in our region.  One of the panels we visited on this hot August afternoon is found on the Cecil/Kent county line at the Kitty Knight House.  It looks into the story of the burning of Fredericktown and Georgetown.

Down in Chestertown, visitors will find another placement at the Kent County Visitor’s Center, describing Caulk’s Field and other important sites.  The other two in our region are found in downtown Elkton and at the visitor’s center in Havre de Grace.  These larger kiosks are being supplemented by plenty of other signs that are being placed all around the area.

The attractive panels are supplemented by other wayside boards and the state’s older historic markers. This one is alongside the Kitty Knight House.
