Historic Handsell House


The Nanticoke Historic Preservation Alliance is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving Handsell, a National Register Historic Site on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. On October 10, with support from a Maryland Humanities Council grant, it will host its annual Nanticoke River Jamboree benefit event. Midge Ingersoll, trustee of the Nanticoke Historic Preservation Alliance, tells us about the fascinating history of the Handsell house.
