Rich Hill in Charles County’s Preservation Matters Newsletter

The 2015 edition of Charles County, Maryland’s Preservation Matters newsletter has been published. The newsletter contains several articles about the historic preservation activities that are occurring around the county.  One of the stories explains the wonderful work being done at Rich Hill, the home of Samuel Cox and a stop on John Wilkes Booth’s escape route.

Rich Hill This Place Matters

The piece highlights the work that is being done to preserve and plan for future site development.  It even quotes a bit from my previously posted article about the history of Rich Hill.  Though my name (and giant face) are present, this article is entirely the work of Cathy Thompson, the Community Planning Program Manager for Charles County. Ms. Thompson and the members of the Friends of Rich Hill committee have been working tirelessly to lay the ground work for a restored Rich Hill. If you are interested in donating to the further refurbishment of Rich Hill, please send your donations to either:

Friends of Rich Hill
P.O. Box 2806
La Plata, MD 20646

or to the

Surratt Society

Please indicate on the bottom of your check that the money is for “Rich Hill”

In the mean time,

    Thanks for the “Heads-Up” regarding this new publication. I stopped by Rich Hill the other day and new restoration work had (as of last week) yet to have begun on the structure’s exterior; only on the home’s interior as per the recent Maryland Independent article.
