The museum has recently opened a new exhibit, “A River Runs Through It”, which illustrates the numerous flood events that have plagued Ellicott City throughout its history.  The building itself is worth seeing – it was the home of the First Presbyterian Church of Howard County from 1894 to 1959, and the museum has maintained the sanctuary, with beautiful stained glass windows and an 1800’s pipe organ, to use for concerts and lectures.
