Perched at the head of the Bay--where the Susquehanna River flattens out to form the Chesapeake--Harford County, Maryland, takes in 520-odd square miles of land and water and more than three hundred years of history. Named for Henry Harford, illegitimate son of the last Lord Baltimore, the county is a testament to human and architectural diversity.In An Architectural History of Harford County, Maryland, Christopher Weeks brings together some six hundred photographs and a richly detailed text to explore one of the truly fascinating regions in America. Architecture in Harford County reflects almost every influence, from the earliest colonial folk styles to Bauhaus modern. It is all here: Palladian mansions, some of the country's earliest and finest Gothic Revival churches, the "romantic" stone cottages of the mid-1800s, Belle Epoch mansions of the wealthy, two of the few extant Freedmen's Bureau buildings remaining in the nation, and, of course, the urban tract housing of the mid-twentieth century. Weeks takes us on an architectural tour that includes the country's industrial heritage--quarries in Cardiff and Whiteford, Victorian-era canning establishments in Lapidum, and some of the finest early-nineteenth-century gristmills in the country.Weeks also introduces readers to Harford's equally interesting citizens. Harford County was home to baseball magnate Larry MacPhail and the famous topiary artist Harvey Ladew, whose gardens draw visitors to this day.
