A Ride on the Ma & Pa through Baltimore County in PhotosAug 13, 2:00pmHistorical Society of Baltimore CountyRailroad historian Rudy Fischer will take us on a virtual ride - via slides - along the path of the old Maryland and Pennsylvania (Ma & Pa) Railroad through Baltimore County. The Ma & Pa was formed in 1901 through the consolidation of the Baltimore and Lehigh Railway and the York Southern Railroad, and connected Baltimore, Maryland, and York, Pennsylvania, until the 1950s. The Ma & Pa transported passengers, mail, marble and slate, anthracite coal, lumber, manufactured goods, and agricultural products, especially milk, along its picturesque, meandering route.

Part of our Almshouse Speaker Series. Admission $5 per person, free to HSBC members. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please email us at info@hsobc.org or call us at 410-666-1878.
