It’s All Laurel: City Limits and Beyond
February 18, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - August 31, 2024 @ 4:00 pmFree
MD Where – and What — is Laurel? Those are the questions “It’s All Laurel: City Limits and Beyond” works to answer at a new exhibit opening February 18 at the Laurel Museum. The exhibit reminds visitors that in addition to the City of Laurel and Prince George’s County, Laurel extends into Howard, Anne Arundel and even Montgomery Counties –north, south, east, and west. Within each county and the City of Laurel are communities and neighborhoods with distinctive personalities and demographics, geographies and historical backgrounds. Surprising details abound, including. a 1790s log cabin in Montgomery County, and Maryland’s largest naturally occurring freshwater lake in Russett. Discover dinosaur’s footsteps in South Laurel, racehorses in Howard County (North Laurel), crab fests (Maryland City), the Lincoln funeral florist (Oak Crest) and a 120 year-old celebration (The Grove). Hours are 12-4pm Friday-Sunday. Group Tours and Research Mon-Fri. by appointment only. Admission is free.
