--- Old Salt Returns to Main Street ---

old salt returns to main street

Old Salt has stood watch at the corner of Route 20 and Main Street for many years, a treasured reminder of Rock Hall's maritime past, present, and future. Time and weather took their toll on Old Salt, so Main Street Rock Hall used grant money from the Maryland Department of Community Development to hire a local artist to restore and preserve this cherished Rock Hall landmark.

The restoration work is now complete, so please join us on Thursday, June 22, 2023, at 6:00 PM, as Main Street Rock Hall unveils the newly restored statue.

WHEN: Thursday, June 22 at 6:00 PM

WHERE: Northeast corner of Rock Hall Avenue (route 20) and Main Street
