Special Project: Proceeds from the tour will be used to replace and landscape the entrance to the White House, circa 1803, the former Headmaster’s House at the former Charlotte Hall Military Academy. The White House now is a museum facility used to preserve its archive collection. The entrance to the building is presently a plain wooden deck with five steps in poor condition. The approximate dimension of the landing is 6’x4’ at the entrance door. A replacement deck and steps of composite material will enhance the appearance of the building and provide safety and stability, while a surrounding garden will enhance the beauty of the property. All aspects of the project will conform to historic specifications.
A delicious gourmet box lunch by Quality Street Catering will be available by pre-paid reservation or you can buy lunch on site. Lunch pickup is on the patio of Rosedale Manor at Greenwell State Park between the hours of 11:00 and 2:00. Make your check for $15 payable to St. Mary’s County Garden Club and mail it to Macy Hovland, 23320 Esperanza Drive, Lexington Park MD 20653.
