Waterways of Ellicott City

As told by Lansdowne High School Students
Ellicott City, Maryland

Story Narrative:

The Historical Society of Baltimore County (HSBC) asked students at Lansdowne High School (LHS) to document the history of flooding in nearby Ellicott City after a second historic flood occurred in 2018 in as many years. HSBC led a collaboration with LHS and Howard County Historical Society, along with numerous local residents, to present this unique perspective on history, community, climate change, and consensus-building. This film received an honorable mention at the 2019 Baltimore County Public School Film Expo in 2019.

It was produced by Josua Saull and Kamren Jones with contributions from Justice Mitchell, Madison Williams, Markayla Black, Dan Hernandez, Charlie Dorsey, Autumn Suter, Chloe House and Gloria Obunadike. Watch the companion choir performance “Take Me to the Water.”
