1. The Lafayette Trail Marker
Inscription. This three-mile trail begins here at the Susquehanna Museum at the Lock House and winds through the historic district. As you follow the fleur-de-lis trail marker, you will travel by our museums and over 800 historic structures within the old town area. This self-guided tour embraces our past and honors those who walked before us.

We hope you will enjoy the beauty of The Lafayette Trail and this lovely place we call Havre de Grace.
