February 2013 Stan and Ina Choate
The B&O would like to thank and recognize Stan and Ina Choate as the February 2013 Volunteers of the Month. They are volunteers at Ellicott City Station. 

Stan joined us in 2006 and Ina followed in 2009.  They took on the task of revamping the freight agent’s office and living quarters. They cleaned and removed unnecessary or non-time period items and replaced them with items purchased with their own money. They also wear period clothing to help visitors experience the feel of the time period. Ina, as mistress of the house, keeps everything tidy and rotates items for the seasons explaining life in Howard County in the mid 1800’s. The gardens in front of the museum are maintained by them as well. They are a great part of the volunteer program in Ellicott City.

Stan and Ina, thank you for sharing your time, talents, kindness, and love for history.   We are so fortunate to have you on our team! We are glad you choose to volunteer and share your time with us.
