Did you know that Divine of John Waters movie fame was born and buried in Towson? Join Towson's own history buff, Ms. Brenda Carl, for a look back at the town’s wonderful history and notable characters. We’ll start at the pre-Civil War Towson Courthouse and learn how the two Towson brothers from Pennsylvania came down the York Turnpike in the 1700's to start the town that's named for them. We'll also visit the site of the original Towson Hotel, where farmers stopped over before continuing on to Baltimore to sell their goods. We hope you'll join us to discover how places like Prospect Hill Cemetery, Loch Raven Reservoir, and East Towson, founded by African Americans formerly enslaved at Hampton Mansion, helped make Towson into the bustling college town it is today.
