The Dorchester County Historical Society will host a meeting at 1 p.m. Nov. 19 in the DCHS’ Robbins Center, 1003 Greenway Drive, Cambridge, Maryland, to discuss the society’s historical work in Brookview and Eldorado.

DCHS has been working since April to collect history about Brookview and Eldorado, located in the northeastern part of the county known as the Fork District. In the spring, there were a couple meetings held there with the goal of capturing stories and photos about people, places and happenings in that area.

This meeting will be a casual, history gathering affair and the hope is that people who may have been born and raised in the Brookview/Eldorado area may join in to share information, stories and more. As well as the families who settled this area, the Native American history of the Fork District is indisputable. More information on these first people would be welcome too.

Any materials that visitors may bring can be scanned and/or photographed for others to see and use. DCHS maintains a research library that will be helpful for those wishing to dig into family history.

The meeting is free and open to the public.
