Have you heard of the C&O Canal‘s overnight stay program, Canal Quarters? Historic lockhouses along the canal have been renovated to reflect a specific time in Canal history.

In this exhibit, you will find photographs and narratives that chronicle how Montgomery County grew as a suburban jurisdiction in the 1950s including the overall scope of suburban growth from roads to real estate, the retail market shift, and entwined roles of department stores, developers, shopping centers, and planners. Research for the exhibit was conducted by the Center for Suburban Studies.

Have you ever used an old-fashioned typewriter? In honor of National Library Week and the NEA Big Read, Montgomery History is partnering with Montgomery County Public Libraries to host a return of its all-time favorite pop-up exhibit “Tap into History: A Century of Typewriters”. This pop-up exhibit will be displayed at the Beall-Dawson Museum with free admission on Thursday, April 12, 2018 from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Typewriters from the early to mid-twentieth century will be available for people of all ages to use and explore. Everyone is encouraged to type up a memory or message that can be shared. Stop by and see for them yourself. Ding! Carriage return.

Location: Montgomery History is located in the Beall-Dawson Historical Park in downtown Rockville, where you can find our research library, both museums, administrative office, and museum shop. A small parking lot (including designated handicapped parking) for the campus is located on Middle Lane, between the Beall-Dawson Museum and the Library.

USS Constellation, constructed in 1854, is a sloop-of-war/corvette and the second United States Navy ship to carry the name. Constellation is the last sail-only warship designed and built by the Navy. She is actually larger than a "sloop", and more powerfully armed with fewer but much more potent shell-firing guns. She was launched on 26 August 1854 and commissioned on 28 July 1855. From 1859–1861 she took part in African Slave Trade Patrol operations to disrupt the Atlantic slave trade. Constellation spent much of the war as a deterrent to Confederate cruisers and commerce raiders in the Mediterranean Sea. She remained in service for close to a century before finally being retired in 1954, and is preserved as a museum ship in Baltimore, Maryland, where she remains today. Come to "Poolesville in History Day" THIS SATURDAY MAY 7th and meet the ship's crew of the USS Constellation. 9:30 to 4:00 pm
