July 21- The History of Chesapeake Beach

presented by Joan Kilmon

Incorporated in 1894, Chesapeake Beach was developed as a resort destination for the Chesapeake Beach Railway.  And the town has continued to evolve, long after the last train pulled out of the station in 1935.

Joan Kilmon is a retired branch manager of the Calvert Library Twin Beaches branch where she hosted a local history discussion group through the program, Calvert Conversations. She has been a board member of the Friends of Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum since 1980.
