Edgemere in Baltimore County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Rebirth of a Maryland Historical Treasure
Originally built in 1906 by the United Railways and Electric Company on this site, stood the once grand Bay Shore Park Restaurant. As the picture below captures the beauty of the former building's elaborate architecture complete with pergolas and towers, you briefly step back into time. Imagine relaxing in the spacious dining rooms, all set with great white cloths, shining crystal and beautiful silver, and then enjoying a seafood supper or chicken dinner, complete with local farm grown fresh vegetables, for the unbelievable price of seventy-five cents. These and many more were the common images of visitors enjoying themselves at Bay Shore's facilities before its closing in 1947.
Today, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources is proud to provide North Point State Park with a newly designed Visitor Center and Conference Facility. Designed
Erected by Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
