Horsepower will return cannons to Doubleday Hill

On Saturday at 10 a.m., the refurbished Doubleday Hill cannons will be brought back to their mount overlooking the Potomac River.

The three cannons with new carriages will be hitched up and pulled by horses through town for the first time in approximately 150 years. Residents and guests are invited to sit along the route to watch or even walk along to be a part of the historical event.

The cannons will leave Town Hall, travel north on Conococheague Street, then east on Potomac Street and through Byron Memorial Park.

They will stop briefly at the Boy Scout building for pictures and watering the horses. Then they will proceed around the ball fields, down Church Street into Riverview Cemetery to the top of Doubleday Hill, where the cannons and carriages will be permanently mounted.

A rededication of the site will be held July 4.

The Town Museum Annex in Town Hall will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Visitors will receive a keepsake bracelet, learn about town history and local folklore and see the World War II Military Wall.
