The Howard County Historical Society isgiving students from preschool through eighth grade an opportunity to discover the past with this summer’s Passport to the Past Program.

Passport to the Past encourages kids to create a personal historical diary by visiting historical sites in the Maryland area. Your kids can see the only known all-iron truss bridge, an old firehouse, a meditative shrine, a schoolhouse and more. After you visit each site, your kids can upload, paste, or draw a photo of themselves from the historic site into their passport. Validate the completed passport by September 1, and be entered to win some cool prizes.

To participate in this exciting adventure, either download the app (HCHS Passport To The Past) or pick up a passport booklet at the Historical Society at Miller Library or the Museum of Howard County History (8328 Court Avenue, Historic Ellicott City), Fridays – Sundays 1-5 p.m.

For more information visit the Howard County Historical Society website.
