August 3, 2015

It was a warm day, alright one could call it hot. But those who came to Betterton MD on August 1, 2015 for their Appreciation Day had a good time.

Beginning in the late 19th Century and the first half of the 20th, Betterton was a big resort town. Hotels were full of visitors from Philadelphia and Baltimore who came to the town via steamship passenger ferries. Their was a hug amusement complex and the beach on the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Sassafras River.

Although many of the hotels have been replaced by condos, the memory is still there for many as well as their families hearing tales of the good times had at the Chesapeake Beach Resort Town.
