"Welcome to Linthicum"
Linthicum Heights, MD

A wooden sign with the message "Welcome to Linthicum" has stood the test of time for 25 years at the intersection of Maple Road and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard. Weather has taken its toll on the sign resulting in damage and rotting planks. Instead of having the sign replaced, board members from the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association (LSIA) chose to restore the sign. The project was funded by the Linthicum-Shipley Historical Society and the LSIA Save-Our-Sign Campaign. Volunteers put in over 400 hours hand-chiseling and sanding off what was left of the original finish and replacing rotten sections with new wood. After the completion of the project, the restored sign will be unveiled at the National Electronics Museum in Linthicum Heights later this year.
