The state's highest court has ended a 3 1/2 -year battle over the historic Woodfield's building in Galesville, but plans to reopen the place as a crab house are far from settled. The Maryland Court of Appeals ruled Monday that William Woodfield Jr. could get a liquor license to run the new business and that there was no proof that property owner Nick Bassford had a secret interest in the venture and was trying to circumvent county laws that limit people to one license. Despite the victory, Woodfield said this week that he doesn't know when the restaurant will be ready to open.

The weekend fire that destroyed a just-completed Galesville crab house and bar has - for the third time in 2 1/2 years - put on hold a project that many residents opposed. Saturday's three-alarm fire caused $2 million in damage and took more than 80 firefighters over three hours to control, according to fire officials. The restaurant was to have opened in May for private parties, said Charles N. Bassford, owner of Woodfield Seafood. Work on the 200-seat crab house, which is at the same site as Woodfield seafood market, was completed two weeks ago, and nine employees were on staff at the Tenthouse Creek site in the 4700 block of Woodfield Road.

A plan by an Annapolis businessman to turn an old icehouse on Tenthouse Creek into a hopping waterfront restaurant and bar, with on- and off-site liquor sales, has upset the quiet Anne Arundel County community of Galesville. Residents of this tiny watermen's community of about 360 people worry that the restaurant and bar will attract a rowdy crowd of weekend visitors who, fueled by hot crabs and cold beer, will roar around the waterfront in souped-up speedboats and trucks. "We are trying to preserve the village and the community," said Robert J. Brant, president of the Galesville Heritage Society, echoing concerns of other residents that the new restaurant and bar will turn the town into a tourist trap.

A plan to open a waterfront bar and restaurant in a quiet village in southern Anne Arundel County has suffered a crippling setback, now that a judge has reversed a county liquor board decision granting the business a license to serve alcohol. Judge Paul A. Hackner of the county Circuit Court said the liquor board's April decision violated a law barring the same person from having financial ties to more than one liquor-licensed establishment. The judge said Charles N. Bassford, who owns the Galesville restaurant, also owns at least two other restaurants with liquor licenses in the county.

Woodfield Jr., the license applicant, also was present as his attorney presented site maps in an effort win a liquor license that would permit on- and off-site sales, as well as Sunday sales and music.

Time hasn't tampered much with Galesville during the past century and a half. The busy West River Market has been a community crossroads for 140 years. Members of the Hartge family have built and repaired boats at Hartge's Yacht Yard since it opened in 1865. And residents have gathered for meetings and celebrations at Memorial Hall since 1914. Residents of this enclave on the West River in Southern Anne Arundel County cherish its small-town ways, and respect its 350-year history as an early Quaker meeting site, a thriving watermen's community and a Revolutionary War battleground.
