Accokeek to be highlighted in upcoming history book -- Gazette.Net


The Accokeek community will be highlighted in an upcoming history book published by Arcadia Publishing.

Arcadia has published more than 5,000 community history books that are each nearly 130 pages in length and contain roughly 200 historic photos with captions for reference.

Kenneth Bryson, the author of ”Images of America: Accokeek,” said the Accokeek community will have a potluck event set for Dec. 27 at the Accokeek fire house, 16111 Livingston Road, to celebrate the book publishing.

Bryson, who is the president of the Friends of the Accokeek Library organization, said the potluck will also serve as a photo scanning event to compile the photos that will be used in the book.
