2011 Guide to Harford - Letter from Harford County Executive, David R. Craig

Welcome to Harford County, Maryland!

Harford County has picturesque country landscapes, bustling urban centers, historic harbor towns and world-class cultural and sporting facilities. The county I am proud to call home also enjoys one of the finest public schools systems in the state, as well as an excellent college campus at Harford Community College.

Harford County is also the proud home to one of America’s premier military installations, Aberdeen Proving Ground, a pillar of freedom where innovations in technology help our nation’s military remain a leader in the world for peace.

Our eight grandchildren keep my wife Melinda and I busy visiting many of Harford County’s attractions. We enjoy walking the promenade in Havre de Grace, touring the world famous gardens at Ladew, or cheering on the IronBirds at Ripken Stadium! Our family loves to “buy local” as we savor locally grown wine and shop along our vibrant Main streets. Delicious dining options await in every Harford County community.

Bring your family to explore our scenic parks, trails and waterways. Learn why numerous museums and hundreds special events celebrate our rich heritage annually. Taking a scenic drive of North Harford where rambling hills, and horse farms are peppered with orchards and farmers markets make an ideal outing.

With so much to experience in Harford County… you will begin to wonder what you love the most!  Harford County is a great place to work, play and raise a family. Enjoy your visit and come back often.

Harford County …. Love it!
