The War of 1812: Bicentennial Observance Exhibit Opens February 1

The Hays-Heighe House at Harford Community College will celebrate the anniversary of the War of 1812 with The War of 1812: Bicentennial Observance Exhibit that will open on February 1 from 3-6:30 PM.  Special events are planned throughout the day.


The opening will include period music and stories performed by costumed interpreters Will and Andrea Priest, who have also volunteered at Fort McHenry.  At 4:30 PM, local historian and adjunct professor Mike Dixon will discuss lesser-known stories about people of the Upper Bay during the war.  Refreshments will be served.  The public is invited to attend the free event.


In addition, the Salon at Hays-Heighe will continue in the spring with a student-led salon on the history of the War of 1812 on February 23 from 3:30-5 PM in Room 201.  Attendees may participate in discussions of the local history of the war as told through primary documents researched by the students.  Refreshments will be served at the free event which is open to the public.
