Hello Everyone! I am pleased to announce we will be having "Not your Usual" Defenders' Day this year! Because of Covid, it will be much smaller than usual and no re-enactment, but we will be having stations with living history actors recounting the events of that day and the history of "The battle of North Point." We will also be having children's activities and soldier encampments. The location will be in Veterans Park next to the museum! We will also have a small 9/11 memorial service at 3pm. The event is on September 11, 2021, 10am to 3pm. There will be food trucks and other things happening on that day in the shopping center. Please email me with questions or concerns or if you would like to get involved: dstaigerwald@gmail.com.


Thank you! Debbie Staigerwald, Chairperson, Defenders' Day

Help Fund the DPNHS Scholarship Program


Every year, the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society offers a $500 scholarship, rotating the offer between Sparrows Point, Patapsco, and Dundalk High Schools.
Each year we dip into our coffers (general fund money) to cover the expense. This year, we thought we’d offer our membership and the general public the opportunity to participate in this most worthy venture. 
The first priority of the DPNHS in awarding the scholarship is that the student pursue academics in the field of history.  If there is no student pursuing a history major, then the guidance office may select an alternate awardee. Several scholarship winners have gone on to become high school history teachers.
Please send your donation with ‘Scholarship Fund’ noted on the check. In the event that we do not raise $500, the Historical Society will add the difference. We hope to add a 2nd $500 scholarship this spring .
