Concord Point Lighthouse – Havre de Grace History
As the nation celebrated her bicentennial 1776-1976, the above plate highlights historical architecture of Havre de Grace including: Concord Point Lighthouse, the old hospital, city park (Tydings Park),
Decoy Carvers, Bayou Hotel (now condominiums), Burns Carriage Shop, the American Legion Post 47, the Draw Bridge (Amtrak), old railroad station, the railroad cut (would have been St. Clair – now Pennington Ave), and the Old Bank Building (now the beautiful La Banque de Fleuve event venue at 321 St. John St)
Apologies for the blurry photo above…
The above plate highlights our Concord Point Lighthouse, The Lafayette Statue, Rodgers House, the bell at our First High School, The Lockhouse (Susquehanna Museum), and St. John’s Church (presently being restored).

Commemorative Plates Offer Bits of Havre de Grace History
This wonderful plate commemorates the Havre de Grace Double Decker Bridge!
The back of this plate offers interesting facts that also
give us a glimpse of the economics of earlier times.
Does anyone know who the 7 citizens were that purchased the bridge for $700 in 1908? Fascinating!
Another interesting commemorative plate features the Havre de Grace Methodist Church.
Even more interesting, are the details on the back of this plate offering
more information about the Methodist Church.
Where was the church located before this building went up?
Was it on the same corner? Or somewhere else?
When you’re looking for collectibles, be sure to check out the back, underside, inside the lid, etc. for interesting details that can often be found regarding the item. Be sure to stop in and chat with George at Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum. There’s always something interesting happening there!
