Occupation: I’m a plumber. I was a welder before that.

Location: I live in Rising Sun, MD

My connection to the Conowingo Dam: My connection to the dam is a love for fishing. The scenery in a kayak staring up river at the dam is priceless.


Below is a photo of an old print I bought at an auction. Yes on purpose, because I knew of its significance and it was to my liking. I find the history of the Conowingo Dam truly fascinating.

A number of these old prints were given to the workers at Conowingo Dam and are now being rediscovered in attics, basements and even at auctions.    


The auction where I purchased my prints took place in Rising Sun, MD. I have no idea who the original owner was, but I was able to confirm that Daniel Garber painted this particular one in 1939. Enjoy!
