C. 1870

In Revolutionary times this site was occupied by the very popular Chick's Tavern, one of 2 buildings in Bohemia Village. In the 1800's the property was obtained by Thomas Conrey who constructed this Romanesque style building C. 1870 using locally made bricks. Over the years the buildings' sues included a hardware store and harness business with a stable in the lower back level. Later it was a dry-goods and the second floor was used for meetings, dances and band practices. The Chesapeake City District Civic Association obtained the building in 1974 and began restoration. The library and the Cecil County Arts Council had been housed here as well as commercial businesses.
