New Roof and Archeology Coming to Tudor Hall

A new roof for Tudor Hall was included on the agenda of the Harford County Historic Preservation Commission at a meeting of the commission on February 4, 2009. Raymond Johnson (project manager of the Harford County Department of Public Works, Division of Construction Management) gave a presentation on the architectural plans for the roof which have been prepared by the architectural firm of Edmeades & Stromdahl of Bel Air, Maryland. At last check, work to replace the roof at Tudor Hall was expected to begin this summer. Keep an eye on the blog for updates.

Joe Pfaff (Director of the Harford County Department of Parks and Recreation) has given Spirits of Tudor Hall permission create a plan for possible archeological exploration at Tudor Hall. Continuing discussions are underway with Ann Persson (president of the Archeological Society of the Northern Chesapeake), Sarah Corey (Harford County Historic Preservation Planner), Charles Hall (Maryland State Terrestrial Archeologist associated with the Maryland Historical Trust), and the Center for the Arts.

Archeological work at Tudor Hall will not begin until the summer of 2010 at the earliest. Any digging at Tudor Hall will be scientifically and professionally planned and supervised, and we will take as much time as we need to make sure we get it right before any digging is authorized by the Department of Parks and Recreation and before any digging actually begins at Tudor Hall.
