Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen

The Greater Crofton Council (GCC) recently donated $10,000 to assist with the preservation, protection and promotion of the Historic Linthicum Walks farmhouse and grounds, located next to the Crofton Middle School. Pictured are Linthicum Walks President Katie Dentler and GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen. Linthicum Walks dates to the mid-1700's and consists of a frame farmhouse built on a stone foundation, embodying the distinctive Tidewater architectural characteristics of early Maryland. The grounds also contain a family cemetery. The Friends of Linthicum Walks at Crofton will hold a General Membership meeting at the farmhouse later this Spring. Linthicum Walks is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the Maryland Historic Trust.
