Chesapeake City, MDIf I were keeper of the names of cities, I would change the name of Chesapeake City. Not because I don't like the name. How could one not like a name that rolls so eloquently off the tongue? I would change it because, as I was walking the streets of this quaint, historical town this past weekend, I kept saying to my husband, "What a cute little porch."
The town is lined with businesses, restaurants, B&B's, and private residential homes that have inviting porches that beckon passers-by to take a seat and enjoy the flavor of the town. I love porches. Don't we all?
Yes, I would change the name to the Town of Cute Little Porches. Too long a name? Yes. And since the town went through a name change in 1839 - it used to be called Village of Bohemia - and since I am not the keeper of town names, I will will have to be happy with the current name. However, when the travel bug beckons me back to Cecil County, Maryland, as it often does, I may say to my husband, "Let's go to the town of Cute Little Porches."
