Talking about museums is one thing, but what about the folks on the ground who really make the history happen? Rod Cofield is our guest this week, and while currently the Director of Historic London Town and Gardens, he has been on the frontlines of history education his whole career. Rod and Nick spoke about his time as a costumed interpreter in Historic St. Mary’s City, and the many current projects at London Town including their plans to crowdfund reconstruction of the 18th century bar that once stood in the tavern building on site. This is no re-enactment, Rod was right here in studio with us, on PreserveCast.
Historic London Town and Gardens along the South River in Anne Arundel County was featured on the Travel Channel’s Booze Traveler program! The waterfront historic site that originally included a circa 1760 upscale tavern and boarding house was the perfect location to experience where travelers and townspeople would come together.
