Maryland Chemical Co.

Got word a couple weeks ago this place is scheduled for demolition. I have driven by it many times but never paid much attention. However now the place is so wide open I just couldn't resist. I have no idea when the demolition is scheduled. From the pictures I have seen it mainly looks like warehouse space. But we decided to give the old girl the fitting tribute it deserves so that even after it is a pile of bricks her memory will live on. My Dad thinks this is where they plan to build the new slots place since Maryland passed a bill legalizing slots. It's right near the two stadiums so it fits the profile of where they said they wanted to build slots exactly.
