Hays-Heighe House
Goes Online!

Well, not the entire house . . . With the closure of campus due to COVID-19, Hays-Heighe House has put its current exhibit, "Harford County: Our Land & Environment," online .

This exhibit looks at Harford County's history of farming, land use, and preservation. In our region, farmers have long been ahead of the rest of the country in their adoption of soil conservation methods, just as government officials and local interest groups have been well ahead of the curve in preserving our farming way of life.

HCC's IT/Cyber Program Meets Community Workforce Needs
