Havre de Grace

Population: 11331
The first recorded history of Havre de Grace dates back to the mid-1500's. An Englishman named Wyth created a preliminary map of the Bay in 1585, but it was not until John Smith's exploration of the Upper Bay and Susquehanna River area in 1608 that a detailed description of the area was recorded. The City became known as Havre de Grace in or around 1782. According to legend, Lafayette referred to the City as Havre de Grace in a letter to George Washington. The letter stated that the site reminded him of the French seaport, Le Havre . Havre de Grace was incorporated as a Town in 1785.
