Nace’s Park Dedication – April 29th – 10:00 am

The Council of Trappe cordially invites you to attend the dedication of Nace’s Park

A passive park developed in 2017 as a tribute to one Trappe’s integral citizens, Mr. Nathaniel Hopkins, affectionately known as “Uncle Nace.”  He was a freed African-American who resided in Trappe.  His most famous contribution was the establishment of the first African-American school on a site near Scott’s United Methodist Church. Mr. Hopkins was a formidable community activist, mentor and historian. 

 In commemoration of his life and death, a dedication program of the Park is planned for April 29th at 10:00 am at the site.  Should the weather be inclement, the dedication will be moved to Scott’s United Methodist Church located at 3748 Main Street Trappe MD.

Luminaries for sale – $1.00

The Trappe Community Outreach group is selling luminaries at the Town office for $1.00 each.  The luminaries are to be lit for the first time on Sunday, November 27th as we attempt to light up Trappe.  Be sure to stop in early to get yours!

Trappe has achieved the designation of a Sustainable Community!!!

What does that mean???  Becoming a sustainable community is a designation that a Town applies for through the State of Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development.  If the Town is awarded the designation then the Town becomes eligible to apply for programs and funding to help promote environmentally, economically and socially responsible growth and development in existing older communities.

This is fantastic news for Trappe!!  Be on the lookout for updated information as the Town continues their planning process and works towards making Trappe an even better place to live and visit!
