Soak up Some Beach History

Remembering when at Mayo beaches

Anne Arundel’s little known Beverly Beach and Triton Beach were once some of the largest resorts on the East Coast. Vacationers came to the popular Beverly Beach Club to swim, play, dance and gamble.
    Two newly erected outdoor interpretive signs introduce Mayo Beach Park and Beverly Triton Beach Park visitors to these and 10 more historic Bay resorts. The signs share the origin and history of notable 19th and 20th century Chesapeake Bay beach resorts in Anne Arundel County, and the cultural climate that created and eventually closed them. Social issues continue to shape the use of Mayo Beach and Beverly Triton Beach Park as their surrounding communities seek to balance the burdens of development.
    The county Cultural Resources Division worked with Department of Recreation and Parks to create the signs with grants from the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority and Anne Arundel County Trust for Preservation.
    Beverly Triton Beach Park is open daily sunrise to sunset. Mayo Beach offers public access Sundays beginning in June, plus Memorial Day and Labor Day Mondays.
