Begun in 1923 as a cluster of summer cottages, Holland Point has developed into a jewel-like residential community on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay at the southern tip of Anne Arundel County. Vintage photographs here capture the history of this community's early beach life that virtually vanished in an August 1933 storm. Behind rock seawalls, residents continued to celebrate with seafood, boating, and parties. Fourth generations of founding families now build luxury homes around "Grandma's cottage" but appreciate the same waves, waterfowl, and wildlife that their ancestors admired when they first cut through the forest to discover the bay.

Author Biography

A 1930 summertime and then permanent resident of Holland Point, Janet Bates attended Washington College and has served as director of the Holland Point Citizens Association. She solicited and scanned the photographs and gathered facts for captions. Joy Baker, a resident since 1985, has been secretary and director for the association. She recorded interviews of longtime residents and used skills from her degree in computer science for this book. Alice Birney, a weekender since 1994, has a doctorate in literature, has worked as a library literary specialist in Washington, D.C., since 1973, and has published two scholarly books.
