BRIEFING
DEST INAT IONS /
Havre de Grace, Maryland
Water landings and weddings on the Susquehanna River
BY JULIE SUMMERS WALKER
AT THE CONFLUENCE of the Susquehanna River and the head of
the Chesapeake Bay is a historic waterfront town that celebrates
Maryland's natural resources such as its bay, waterfowl, seafood,
and environment. It has the oldest continuously operated lighthouse
in Maryland, a nearly mile-long waterfront promenade,
and an active seaplane base.
The 36-foot-tall Concord Point Lighthouse was established
in 1827 at the end of Lafayette Street. It is now a museum. The
waterfront boardwalk stretches for nearly one mile along the
bay from Tydings Memorial Park (named for U.S. Sen. Millard
Tydings of Maryland, who was born here) to the lighthouse.
Visitors can view the waterfowl and natural landscape of the
shoreline. An active Amtrak line buzzes across the Susquehanna
River Bridge, taking travelers along the Northeast Corridor.
The seaplane base was established in the 1970s by then-owners
Arnold and Elsie Stackhouse. In 2014 Nick Contis and Kim
Barth renovated the base and the structures on site-including
a nineteenth century bank-as a wedding venue, La Banque de
Fleuve. The summer sees Maryland's only seaplane base boasting
about 25 to 30 operations, according to Barth.
" We have pilots come from up and down the East Coast, with
one pilot landing just to get one of Maryland's oh, so famous crabcakes.
La Banque at the Seaplane Base operates as a wedding
venue on the adjacent land and our couples have the opportunity
to arrive in style...in a seaplane, " Barth said.
" The Seaplane Base opened in 1974 and is considered a historic
property in Havre de Grace. We open it frequently to the
public and love for visitors to come down on First Fridays or
WHY YOU SHOULD GO /
Summer in Maryland-seafood,
crab feasts, waterfront festivals,
and sunsets are all a part of
what makes Havre de Grace
special. Watch sailboats, try SUP
(stand-up paddle boarding), and
paragliding on the water.
GETTING THERE /
Havre de Grace Seaplane Base
(M06) is on the shore of the west
side of the Chesapeake Bay. It has
been in continuous operation for
more than 50 years. Open May
through November, a floating
airport dock serves the 8,000foot
by 200-foot water north/
south and east/west runways in
freshwater.
