Eastport in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Eastport's Old “Main Street”
After the bridge was moved to Sixth Street in 1947, many local businesses closed and the neighborhood remained undeveloped for decades. Ironically, these circumstances helped preserve the historic charm you see today.
Text with main photo: Sam's Corner was a popular neighborhood restaurant, especially for the workers at the nearby Annapolis Yacht Yard. That's Sam Lewnes at the counter in his dapper white jacket and bow tie, sometime in the 1930s.
Text with upper-left photo: Lou's Restaurant was originally Sam's Corner. It is now Lewnes' Steakhouse, owned by Sam's grandson, Charlie.
