History of Brookview and Eldorado
November 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Dorchester County Historical Society has been working since April of this year to collect history about Brookview and Eldorado, located in the northeastern part of the county known as the Fork District. In the spring there were a couple of meetings held there with the goal of capturing stories and photos about the people, places and happenings in that area. Understanding that there is much more work to be done, DCHS will hold a meeting on Tuesday, November 19, at 1 pm in the Robbins Heritage Center in Cambridge.
This meeting will be a casual, history gathering affair and the hope is that people who may have been born and raised in the Brookview/Eldorado area may join in to share information, stories and more. As well as the families who settled this area, the Native American history of the Fork District is indisputable. More information on these first people would be welcome too.
Any materials that visitors may bring can be scanned and/or photographed for others to see and use. DCHS maintains a research library that will be helpful for those wishing to dig into family history too.
The Dorchester County Historical Society is located at 1003 Greenway Drive in Cambridge. For more information, call 410.228.7953 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This offering is free and open to the public.
