Maryland Independent - - News -

The Charles County His­toric Preser va­tion Com­mis­sion hosted a Preser­va­tion Re­cep­tion and Awards Cer­e­mony on Thurs­day, May 18, at Small­wood State Park. As part of this event, the com­mis­sion an­nounced the 2016 Charles County Preser­va­tion Award win­ners. Pat Turner, Derek and Beth Turner, Tina and Steve Lohr, Gray­den Hays and Wayne Wilk­er­son were preser va­tion award re­cip­i­ents. Tyler Quick re­ceived hon­or­able men­tion for 2016.

Hays, a lo­cal Boy Scout and Wilk­er­son re­ceived a Preser­va­tion Ser­vice Award for cleanup and restora­tion ef­forts at the Crabb Fam­ily Ceme­tery lo­cated in the Daven­leigh de­vel­op­ment near Bene­dict. The ceme­tery con­tains the graves of Thomas and El­iz­a­beth Crabb, and their son and daugh­ter-in-law, Ralph and Priscilla Sprigg Crabb. The Crabbs were mer­chants, planters, and mem­bers of the colo­nial Mary­land leg­is­la­ture. The ceme­tery is one of the ear­li­est in Charles County and dates to the early 18th cen­tury.

A Preser­va­tion Project Award was awarded to Pat Turner, Derek and Beth Turner, and Tina and Steve Lohr of S.D. Lohr Inc. for the restora­tion of the Bowl­ing Green Farm­house. The home was built in the early 19th cen­tury, and ren­o­vated in the Vic­to­rian-style around 1875. Bowl­ing Green is one of the ear­li­est and most elab­o­rate post-Civil War dwellings in Charles County, and has been owned and oc­cu­pied by mem­bers of the same ex­tended fam­ily (Bowl­ing, Posey and Turner) for more than 100 years.

Quick, an­other lo­cal Boy Scout, was rec­og­nized as hon­or­able men­tion for the Preser­va­tion Project Award for his ef­forts to in­stall a fence around the Mar­ket Over­ton Ceme­tery lo­cated on the grounds of the Lutheran Church of Our Sav­ior in Bryans Road,.
