Eastport in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The houses bear witness to Eastport's early years. The seventh house was the first post office in the new community, which Murphy named after his hometown in Eastport, Maine.
When the glass factory closed in 1902, Murphy's Row fell into disrepair. In the early 1980s, the properties were redeveloped and sold as private residences. They are Eastport's only remaining examply of the 19th century row-house style.
Text with upper left photo: These homes were built for the workers from the Annapolis Glass Factory, located just two blocks away.
