Comment below with your stories about downtown Annapolis. Remember the oyster boats in Ego Alley? What happened to your favorite restaurant? Did you serve in the state legislature and frequent the pubs? Have you lived downtown? Remember the old grocery store and Market House?
I grew up in Wild Rose Shores, a community at the end of Ferry Point Road. It’s called that because it was originally the North side of the ferry crossing from Londontowne on the South River. In 1983, I was preparing for my second year of college. For several years I had been active in a Revolutionary War reenactment group based in Annapolis. Wild Rose Shores wanted to have their own event for the bicentennial of the American Revolution. They provided George Washington on a horse and I brought in some of my artillery regiment. The event was covered by the local paper as well as by a special community newsletter.
