Odenton Heritage Society Open House

March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In a display opening Sunday, March 5, the Odenton Heritage Society will explore Odenton’s role in making train travel safer since the 1880s.  “Railroad Accidents and Safety” examines local train wrecks and responses by railroad companies, from dual tracks to switch towers at junctions, modern train signals, and preventive track maintenance.  The contributions of Odenton railroad workers, including tower operators and African American track inspectors and track maintenance workers, will be presented.  The Odenton Heritage Society Museum shows how Odenton connected Baltimore, Washington, and Annapolis with train service and how the town’s neighborhoods and Historic District grew around railroad facilities, employees, and their families.  Hours on March 5 are from 1 pm to 4 pm, and admission is free.
