     Third Thursday Brown Bag Lunch Program

    September 17th         The Dream Dies Hard: Albert Cassell’s Plan for Calvert Town

    Sally Berk and Peter Sefton

    The Calvert County Historical Society’s Brown Bag Lunch Program on September 17th will feature Washington DC preservationists Sally Berk and Peter Sefton in a presentation entitled The Dream Dies Hard: Albert Cassell’s Plan for Calvert Town. Albert Cassell was a visionary architect whose designs included buildings for Howard and Morgan State Universities and the US Government in Washington DC. In the 1930s he proposed his most ambitious creation of all: a “planned” community for African Americans to be located on 500 acres off Dares Beach Rd. in Calvert County. Join us as Berk and Sefton describe Cassell’s plans and the obstacles that prevented them from being realized.  Thursday, September 15th at Noon, at Linden, 70 Church Street in Prince Frederick. Bring your Lunch, Bring your Questions, and Bring your Friends! Free and Open to All! For information call 410 535-2452 or email cchsadmin@calverthistory.org.
