The Benson-Hammond House stands as a tranquil oasis amid Linthicum's bustling air and ground traffic. The 200-year-old mansion-turned-museum sits on about 3 acres, surrounded by BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. That it escaped the wrecking ball and has thrived is due largely to a determined group of volunteers who formed the Ann Arrundell County Historical Society 50 years ago. "We are the only museum in the U.S. located on an international airport's property," said Oscar "Skip" Booth, former president and current vice president of the 400-member society.
