  • Join Ralph Buglass for a presentation about Maryland’s iconic Sugarloaf Mountain!

    It is mountain laurel season! Are you thinking of Marylanders’ favorite mountain? Take off your hiking boots and rest your feet while enjoying a presentation by Ralph Buglass about the history of Sugarloaf Mountain. Login at https://mcpl.events/sugarloaf-mountain

    Sugarloaf Mountain, a private oasis of natural beauty and scenic vistas that is open to the public, nearly became Camp David and was almost topped with a modernistic structure designed by one of America’s most famous architects, Frank Lloyd Wright, that instead ended up as a New York City landmark. This extensively illustrated talk explores these and other historical oddities of this tiny mountain that sits all by itself just over the Montgomery County line in Frederick County.
