Just about 40 miles from TV Hill is Havre de Grace, right along the Susquehanna River in County Harford (boaters like to say it sits on the corner of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay).

Havre de Grace has a small, cool downtown area with lots of shops, places to stop and eat, aka “kid’s bikes”. All in all, it’s just a great place to walk around, and it reminds me a lot of Chestertown. Plus, parking is free, which is a big perk.
There is also a promenade right on the water that makes for a great hike. It’s a really great setting to just relax and drink one of those so-called “cold remedies”.
But nestled along Washington Street is a unique spot. Call it Hollywood meets the “Duck Capital of the World”, as Havre de Grace is commonly known. Welcome to the Washington Museum of Books and Street Entertainment.
Last year, 27,000 people walked into the doors of this museum, which started off as a bookstore and turned into a collection of comics, crystals, fossils, games, jewelry, maps, military, historical records. sporting objects and of course, movie props.
The best way to learn more about this place is through its website.

The collectors world has created what I call a more upscale antique store. These collectors rotate and trade online and in person around the world. Owner John Klisavage has a personal passion for movie props and his stuff is a real deal (or reel).
Take a look at the interviews we did this morning and marvel at the amount of film props, especially costumes, he has. For example, costumes from “The Hunger Games” are on display right now.
Remember the dress Katniss wore when she and Peeta took the train from the Capitol to District 12? It lives in Harford County.
It just shows it’s amazing what you’ll find in your own backyard.
