150 Years of Howard History

September 26, 2000

Howard County, which began July 4, 1851, as a western outpost of neighboring Anne Arundel County, has started celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

To mark the occasion and give readers a sense of what life was like in Howard County 150 years ago, the Howard County edition of The Sun will publish a column on county history and the people who were part of it. The column will appear every Tuesday through the school year on Page 3B.

This week's column looks at three historic landmarks that were part of the development of the county.
