Maryland Watch

March 23, 1996

From Fort McHenry to Fort Washington, from a Garrett County grist mill to a St. Michaels maritime museum, from the tobacco plantations of the state's first capital in St. Mary's County to the Georgian gems of Annapolis, Maryland offers history aplenty.

Now, hoping to tap into a booming market for history-related tourism, Maryland's Office of Tourism has assembled a free, 32-page promotional guide detailing hundreds of attractions throughout the state.

"Maryland Celebrates History A Guide to Maryland's Historical Attractions" includes concise descriptions of attractions, maps, timetables of historic events, color photos, phone numbers, admission prices and suggested reading.

The user-friendly guide divides the state into regions and lists the attractions alphabetically under each town and county.

The tourism office produced a first run of 30,000 copies in-house, at a cost of $20,000 for printing.

To receive a copy of "Maryland Celebrates History" or other promotional materials, write to the Maryland Office of Tourism, 217 E. Redwood St., Baltimore 21202.
