As the Bohs and O’s resident County correspondent I would like to take this time recognize that Baltimore County celebrated her 350th birthday this week. Much of the reporting we do on this site focuses on Baltimore City, but I would like to take this opportunity to focus on the attractions and beauty of my birthplace, Baltimore County.
Baltimore County was founded in 1659, 70 years before the founding of Baltimore city. Let us not forget that Baltimore City was once a part of Baltimore County until county leaders grew weary of the City’s many problems and kicked it out in 1851. Shortly after in 1854 these County leaders made the wise decision of selecting Towson as the County Seat. Some of my fellow Bohs and O’s contributors often look down on Baltimore County, but only because they are ignorant of her illustrious past.
Some of Bohs and O’s favorite county activities include:
- Tubing on the Gunpowder
- Wine tasting at Boordy, Woodhall, and Basigiani
- Everything Towson, but especially enjoying Kine Teas at Soris’ Saloon
- Betting on the horses at the State Fair
- Damien Wolfe at Hightops
There is all of this and much more! Celebrate the 350th anniversary of Baltimore County’s founding by telling us some of your favorite things about the County.
