DNR Offers Linthicum House for Free
If You Can Move it, You Can Have it
Church Creek, MD - The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is offering a free house to any person or organization that is willing to move the house, at their expense, from its current location.
The house – built in 1915 and known as the Linthicum House - is currently located near Church Creek at Golden Hill Road (MD Route 335) and Key Wallace Drive, on the grounds of Harriett Tubman Underground Railroad State Park in Dorchester County. The house is in stable condition, and retains many of its interior finishes.
Prospective applicants or the general public can attend an open house and inspect the house on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. A request for proposals for moving or salvage including photographs and additional details is available on the DNR website.
If there are no successful applicants willing to move the house, DNR will then consider proposals to salvage interior elements such as doors, staircases, and flooring.
For more information, call Jordan Loran at 410-260-8907.
