Halethorpe Heritage:  A Story of a Maryland Community

Written by Barry A. Lanman, Halethorpe Heritage: A Story of a Maryland Community chronicles the history of a diminutive suburban community strategically located in close proximity to Baltimore.  Like a diamond in the rough, this triangular-shaped village has provided an alternative to city life, offering an unassuming place in which to live a serene existence for more than eleven decades.  An enclave of modest means known for its hard working citizens, the community has also provided the preparatory foundation for esteemed individuals who have contributed to the fabric of the surrounding area, the state of Maryland and beyond.

Some of the citizens of note, who called Halethorpe home, became authors, business leaders, men and women of academia, local and state politicians, an individual who served presidents and members of the military who became decorated combat heroes.  In addition to these individual accomplishments, Halethorpe has been a place rich in history that has served as the home of national and international events.

This account provides an in-depth look at one Maryland community.  It is a story that explores the traditional as well as the unique aspects of Halethorpe heritage.   To purchase a copy of the hard back book, please contact Sandy Cullen (410-242-7717).  Cost is $24.95.
