Historic Elk Landing
Elk Landing is a small but important Historic Site located in the northeast corner of Maryland. Here is where a young nation struggled for liberty and citizen soldiers repelled invaders seeking to burn the local town. It was a residence to a prominent merchant family who's businesses grew the regional economy and a key transportation hub for those traveling between major mid-Atlantic cities. Along the adjoining Little Elk Creek, a 19th century boatyard constructed large vessels that traveled the Atlantic seaboard.
Today, it is a place to see and imagine life as it was.
We hope to see you soon and experience this meaningful Historic Site for yourself.
The custom doors and windows in the Stone House have been installed - and they look great!
Use the slider to see the dramatic change in the Stone House which has taken years of hard work to stabilize, repair and restore this beautiful historic structure.
