Racing through History in Baltimore County's Horse Country

Horses gallop down the stretch during Legacy Chase at Shawan Downs.

As the home to over nine thousand horses, it's no surprise that Baltimore County exemplifies the Maryland equestrian tradition. The beauty of the countryside, the excitement, and the festive atmosphere all make steeplechase and timber racing in Baltimore County must-attend events during the region's beautiful spring season. Don't miss out on this unique tradition, dating back to the first running of the Maryland Hunt Cup in 1894.

Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum Receives Grant

A procession of reenactors during the celebration of Maryland Day in Annapolis.

On Maryland Day, March 25, in the Annapolis State House, Governor Martin O’Malley presented the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum with a $35,000 matching grant in support of the Defenders Day at North Point event to be held on September 6 and 7. The Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum and Baltimore County Tourism and Promotion joined 13 other non-profit and government organizations across Maryland, which together are investing more than $3.3 million in bicentennial projects this year. Defenders Day at North Point interprets and commemorates military actions that happened on Patapsco Neck or North Point, near Baltimore, on Monday, September 12, 1814. These actions, now known as the Battle of North Point, resulted when a British invasion fleet landed thousands of troops near Baltimore.
