For local archaeologists, the piece de resistance would be to find items that once belonged to Comte de Rochambeau, the French army commander during the American Revolution. He and 5,000 troops are said to have encamped at Belvoir-Scott's Plantation in Crownsville along Generals Highway, an area now being excavated by archaeologists as a partnership among the State Highway Administration, Anne Arundel County and Rockbridge Academy, the property owner. SHA officials said the highway between Interstate 97 and Annapolis has roots in the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Generals Highway was originally built in the early 18th century as a second post road between Williamsburg, Va., and Philadelphia.

When he started a veterinary hospital along Generals Highway on the outskirts of Annapolis in 1974, Harrison Monk says, he was promised his business would be linked to Anne Arundel County's water and sewer services in about a decade. Greater Annapolis Animal Hospital, which now is home to 15 veterinarians, still is without those services. Now drawing water from its second well, the practice also relies on its own septic system. And because it's a business, state regulations require Monk to be certified in water inspection, which calls for him to take continuing-education classes when he says he'd rather be studying animal medicine.
