Laurel Historical Society

McCeney March October 22

Saturday October 22 the Laurel Historical Society (LHS) will hold the first “McCeney March” through Historic Laurel. Held in memory of former LHS Board Chair and President Jim McCeney, who passed away this year, the event will raise funds for a scholarship for students interested in history and to benefit the Laurel Historical Society.  Jim walked every day for many years and the three-mile walk will include some of his favorite routes in Historic Laurel.

"Like many others, my morning trip out of Old Town Laurel for work included a wave from Jim and his merry band of walkers.  The Society wants to honor his memory by creating another Laurel tradition.  The McCeney March (5k walk through Old Towne) seemed a perfect combination of an activity he loved to do, while highlighting a history that he and his family have been a part of for generations and the birth of an annual scholarship to help the next generation for history lovers to do the same." stated LHS Board Chair Jhanna Levin.

The walk will start at the Laurel Historical Society 817 Main Street in Laurel. Pre-Registration is $10 for children under 18, $20 for adults a $50 for a family registration – 4 persons of any age. Day-of registrations is $30 for individuals, $60 for a family registration.-Shirts will be available to pre-registrants, but not guaranteed for day-of registrants.  Materials pickup and day-of registration begins at 8:30 am and the walk begins at 9:00. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for the event.  Deadline for sponsors to be on T-shirts and booklets is October 7; Walking Tour booklet listing deadline is October 15. Details and sign-up forms for the walk and for sponsorships can be found at www.laurelhistoricalsociety.org.

Old Mill Dance Class Evokes 1918 Dance in Laurel – at Same Site



Laurel, MD…Can you foxtrot? Waltz? Do a basic box step?  Saturday March 18 at 1 p.m. join Fidel “DJ Salsero” Gonzalez for a one hour dance class honoring Laurel’s WWI past.  Participants at “An Old Mill Dance Class” will have an opportunity to learn some new moves or polish old ones – where people danced almost 100 years ago. Beginners are welcome, and the one-hour class will be friendly to all ages and levels of expertise.  The class is being held at the Laurel Pool Room, 9th and Main Streets.  There’s a suggested donation of $3 for LHS members and $5 for non-members.

The Laurel Museum’s current exhibit:  “Laurel’s WWI:  From Here to Over There,” uncovered research indicating numerous dances for soldiers, including one at the “Old Mill” (the old cotton mill ) with soldiers from the 23rd regiment in February, 1918. The Laurel Pool Room was built where the Laurel Cotton mill once stood. The “Great Gala”, the organization’s annual gala on April 22, this year will include a few 1918-era dances in homage to the WW1 soldiers who came through the town during the war. The dance class is designed to give dancers a chance to preview – and hone --some of the dance steps soldiers and community members would have known in 1918. However all are welcome to the class, whether they plan to attend the Gala or not.

The Laurel Museum, located at 817 Main Street, is open Wednesdays and Fridays 10-2, Sundays 1-4. Admission is free. For additional information visit www.laurelhistoricalsociety.org or contact info@laurelhistoricalsociety or 301-725-7975.
