Flipping the Bird in Annapolis

Monday afternoon, I drove over to Annaplis to have lunch with blog buddies Margaret Woda, Jesse Clifton and Audrey June Forsey, and on my way home, I met this fellow standing on a corner looking, well, distracting.  And I sort of noticed that his markings look sort of like Millie the Holstein Kitten.  Maybe they're cousins. Subscribe in a reader

St Patrick's Day Happenings in Maryland
Virginia "Ginny" Glenn, Ginny Glenn (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage)
Things to do in Maryland on St. Patrick’s Day When you hear St. Patrick’s Day you think,  “I need something green and where’s the fun?!”.   The Patron Saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, is known for bringing Christianity to the Irish people.  The familiar shamrocks we all wear during the holiday were used by St. Patrick to describe the holy trinity.   It is thought St Patrick’s death was on on March 17th, which is when we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish view this day as a religious Holiday. St. Patrick’s Day always falls during lent.  One of the Lenten rules is not to eat meat. This rule is waived during St. Patrick’s Day as the Irish will attend church in the morning and then the people would have a feast of Irish food, dance and drink to celebrate St. Patrick’s life. Now for the local fun! Baltimore always has their pub-crawl in Canton and Federal Hill.  Canton calls it their annual “Meet in the Street”. The event is sponsored by Claddagh pub with all the other bars in the square joining in. This is one of Baltimore’s most raucous events.  There are outdoor beer tents, awesome music and the Irish take over Canton.  This is one event that won’t let you down. You will find the similar events at Power Plant Live, Fells Point and Federal Hill.  You can’t go wrong spending your St. Patrick’s Day in Baltimore in any of the popular neighborhoods. If you live in Annapolis they do their own version of St. Patrick’s Day.  They start the morning off with a 4-mile run sponsored by Fleet Street sports in Annapolis.  After the run be sure to head downtown by foot, car or boat for a good Ruben sandwich and some green beer at any of the local Irish pubs. Another hot spot if you are not in the mood to drive to Baltimore is Bel Air.  Looney’s of Bel Air puts on a great St. Patrick’s Day party.  Looney’s will open at 8am and will have everything from bagpipers to sporting events on TVs plus all your favorite Irish food. If you get an itch to venture in to downtown Bel Air you will find other parties at the other bars as well.  A great day to get out and explore the area and new venues! Many areas have St Patrick’s Day parades the weekend before the holiday.  If this is something you are interested in please check the local paper for route and times. Enjoy St. Patrick’s Day and remember it’s not worth all the aggravation of a DUI!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I leave you with this- May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck, brightened by a song in your heart, and warmed by the smiles of the people you love. sVirginia "Ginny" Glenn Realtor MD & VA Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage 4 Church Circle Annapolis, MD 410-919-1860 6832 Old Dominion Drive McLean, VA 703-356-7000 x 2070 For Quickest Response Cell 443-994-6987

Annapolis History Then & Now
Virginia "Ginny" Glenn, Ginny Glenn (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage)
Annapolis History: Then and Now Did you know? The capital of Maryland was originally called "Providence”. It was later called "Anne Arundel's Towne" after the wife of Lord Baltimore, who owned the proprietary colony. Later when the Royal Governor, moved the capital here from St. Mary's City the small seaport received its present name. Sir Francis Nicholson chose to honor Princess Anne, heir to the throne. In 1708, as Queen, Anne’s colonial namesake was chartered as a city. To this day her royal badge, with a crown over the entwined thistle of Scotland and Tudor rose of England, is depicted on the Annapolis flag. Instead of using a customary grid, the city was designed using a baroque plan of circles and radiating streets similar to many cities in Europe.  This allowed for some structures of importance to be focal points.  St. Anne’s Episcopal Church and the State House are both located in such circles. Current Happenings in Annapolis: City Dock Master Plan: Public Hearing The Planning Commission will host a public hearing on the City Dock Master Plan on March 21 at 7:00 pm, City Council Chambers, 160 Duke of Gloucester St., Annapolis.

NEW MEETS OLD GIS Mapping aids Historic Preservation
Virginia "Ginny" Glenn, Ginny Glenn (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage)
NEW MEETS OLD Technology is amazing!  Kudos to all that worked to develop this program for the impact it will have on preserving these sites and information for future generations. The Geographic Information System (GIS) for the Historic District of Annapolis was begun in 1996 as a collaboration between the University of MD, Annapolis Planning and Zoning, Historic Annapolis Foundation funded by Grants from the Maryland Historical Trust. The site combines 70+ types of information, including local archaeological and National Register sites, historic maps, easements, old photos from state and historical society archives, architectural surveys, census data, and modern structures. City planners, preservationists, archaeologists, and archivists as a way to gather, store, and display information…and a wonderful research tool and a way to help preserve history!

George Washington slept here: Considerations of Historic Properties
Virginia "Ginny" Glenn, Ginny Glenn (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage)
Owning a historic home can be a joy!  To avoid flipping your proverbial financial wig later there are some things you should consider. Always have the home’s systems evaluated by an expert.  Plumbing, heating, and electrical systems may have been modified through the years; but may not be up to current code or pose environmental or health risks.  Lead paint, lead in pipes, asbestos, abandoned underground oil tanks, are  just a few of the potential issues. How much will it cost to bring these up to code…and what special considerations are there with the building structure, site, local regulations, federal?  This is where getting to know your local historical preservation society becomes important.  Roofing materials, plaster walls, masonry may require specialized artisans to replicate period methods or details. Knowing how the home may be updated and which local contractors are certified to do the work. Make sure you build a feasibility study into any offer and discuss remedies/financial responsibility for any potential environmental contamination or cleanup.  If a potential cleanup is not in the seller’s budget…are you willing to accept that?  You’re local historical society may be able to refer you to consultants who have done quite a bit of work in your area.  Enlisting an environmental engineer would also be on the list. Cost of Insurance:  Call your insurance agent.   Rates may be higher for replacement value as restoring/replacing period details such as stained glass, wood floors, windows, mouldings, cabinetry and doors, etc. Financing: Check your State and County Websites for links on special financing incentives for historic properties. Alternatively use a national lender who specializes in such loans.  This is important because when it comes time for the appraisal you want to know they use appraisers experienced in historic properties. Pros:  Besides the ambiance and enjoyment of preserving and owning something truly unique there are financial positives.  Local, State, and Federal Tax incentives may be available for renovating or restoring such properties.  There may also be Grant monies available.
