Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River, 516 Eastern Boulevard
Essex, MD 21221 United States

Did you know that in the days before air-conditioning, families would ride the open aired Eastern Avenue trolley from Highlandtown to Essex and back just to get some breeze? Organized in 1968, the Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River has been a steward of wonderful stories like this and a treasure trove more for 50 years. The organization opened a museum in 1975 in a former 1920s fire and police station that at one time also served as a courthouse. In addition to restoring a historic building, the museum includes historical artifacts, hundreds of binders containing information on the Essex and Middle River area dating to the 1880s, and extensive archival photograph collections. Please join us and the historians and archivists from the museum to peel back the layers of history in this part of Baltimore County.
