Calvert County - Scientists' Cliffs House & Garden Tour May 7, 2011 - What a great way to enjoy and learn about historically and architecturally significant properties. The Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage (MHGP) sponsors the tour at Scientist's Cliffs, one of six house and garden tours for spring 2011.
The Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1930 dedicated to the preservation and restoration of architecturally significant properties in the State of Maryland. This year's house and garden tour at Scientist's Cliffs is just one of many great things to do in Calvert County this spring.
Scientist's Cliffs (Scientist's Cliffs available properties) was established in 1935 as a summer colony for scientists by Flippo and Annie Gravatt. The area was chosen due to the population of American Chestnut trees there that showed resistance to the blight. Original cabins in the area were built from American Chestnut (More information on the American Chestnut Land Trust)trees that had died from the blight. The community is located on tall cliffs along the edge of the bay containing one of the world's richest fossil deposits from the Miocene period (source Wikipedia.org). All homes in the community must have a wooden exterior and they are known for their distinctively rustic look.
