A plan to build about 1,300 homes near the Baltimore City line is showing renewed signs of life, despite concerns raised about traffic, drainage and grading. Last week Anne Arundel County planners handed Cherrywood Development a 25-page list of requirements to meet by April 28 to earn approval for the Cedar Hill project, a deadline that co-owner Stephen P. McAllister said he could meet. "I went over it with my engineers yesterday, and we don't think there's anything that is insurmountable," he said.

An article in the May 17, 1913, edition of The Argus commended a young girl for keeping her wits in an emergency situation. The presence of mind of 8-year-old Isabelle Smith , of Cedar Hill, near St. Denis, probably saved her life about 6 o'clock Saturday evening when, with her clothes a mass of flames, due to playing with a pile of burning railroad ties, she ran to a brook near by and plunged headlong into the water. Isabelle and several other girls of about her own age were playing near the railroad and were attracted by the burning pyre of ties.

Amid thorns and brush, two headstones belonging to Civil War veterans jut up from an abandoned cemetery near Havre de Grace. Just off Route 155 near Elizabeth Street, the cemetery sits atop a hill surrounded by woods, hidden from passers-by. Known as Cedar Hill, the cemetery is one of many abandoned burial grounds in Harford County. While the cemeteries are swallowed slowly by nature, marred by vandals and buried by development, a growing effort is being made to preserve gravesites and the history they represent.

Stephen McAllister steers his Jeep past a "Danger - Keep Out - Hazardous Materials" sign and a burned-out pickup truck rusting in the grass. He dodges discarded water heaters, one-wheeled bicycles, old refrigerators and fallen trees before reaching the top of a boulder that offers a splendid ribbon of Curtis Bay view. There, at a confluence of dump sites on the Anne Arundel County border, the one-time Greenpeace director-turned-suburban developer plans to build a 1,000-home development called Glen Abbey.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Charles P. Duffy, a cocky personal injury lawyer and one-time City Hall functionary, can stand by the Lewis and Clark Monument in Washington Park, just a few steps from the site of a long-gone mansion called Cedar Hill, and point to a spot -- just there -- where a monument to the only American hero of the Bolshevik revolution will assuredly someday rise.Mr. Duffy loves cigars and admires Sinn Fein, but his topic for today is a rich kid from the top of the hill -- a son of Oregon whose radical politics drew him ever more eastward until he reached Petrograd in 1917 just in time to witness the Ten Days That Shook the World.

Inside the fence of Cedar Hill Cemetery, red poinsettia petals from the graves blow across the ground, and the rumble of Ritchie Highway subsides into peace.Today the road, Anne Arundel County's central nervous system, the path nearly everyone travels, is noisy with fast food restaurants and seemingly endless discount carpet stores. But it is the old businesses -- the cemeteries dating to the early 1800s, the taverns that opened on the heels of Prohibition, the car dealerships that grew along with the highway -- that carry the county's history.
