The Road Fight: Saving Canton, 1968 to 1976
February 21, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the Friends of the Canton Library at the historic Engine Company No. 22 Hall at 1030 South Linwood Avenue for an afternoon conversation on the history of the famous “Road Fight.”
In the 1960s, East Baltimore residents joined residents in West Baltimore to prevent the planned construction of a highway that would have devastated Fell’s Point and Canton. Everyone is welcome for a panel discussion that includes Joe McNeely, Betty Deacon, Charlie Duff. Residents past and present are encouraged to bring memories and memorabilia from the history of Canton and southeast Baltimore to show and tell.
Refreshments will be provided. Call 410-935-3969 for more information.
