These lovely murals in Severna Park Maryland document the early history of the town. It is so fun to look at these murals and every time I do I find something else I hadn’t noticed before. Severna Park is a town just outside of Annapolis. The murals were painted by Cindy Fletcher Holden, in 2006, as part of the centennial celebration of the establishment of the town. The Carr Building is were the murals are painted. The back of the building depict the history of Severna Park from a farming community to a town.
Severna Park Station was one of the stops of the railroad that ran between Annapolis and Baltimore.
The old rail station is still standing.
On the alley side of Carr Building, is the mural of the community beach in the summer and all of the activities of a summer day.
Sail boats have dropped anchors. Power boats cruse on the water. Kids are crabbing and have already caught a basket full of crabs. A girl is splashing in the water with her dog. When I see this mural on a winter day, I know summer fun is on its way.
Now the rail track have been replaced by a bike path, Baltimore & Annapolis Trail, that runs from Annapolis to Baltimore Washington International Airport. The trail is a wonderful path and is used by bikers, joggers, and walkers.
Have fun creating,
