The City of Havre de Grace has a rich history...
In the late 1700s a small town was forming at the junction of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay. By 1798 the town had 40 homes and the name "Havre de Grace." In 1840 the town became known as an important commercial intersection for transporting goods and people. The city was a popular recreation destination in the early 1900s attracting the adventurous for waterfowl hunting, fishing and horse racing at "The Graw." Today, Havre de Grace remains a wonderful place to take a leisurely stroll along the waterfront and visit museums, shops, restaurants, and numerous city festivals.
