John W. McGrain Jr., the prolific local historian and photographer, celebrates Towson’s 250th birthday and transition from a one-house village to a modern bustling county seat in his recently published book “250 Candles for Towson: Documents and Memoirs.”
McGrain, who is in his late 80s, was the former secretary of the Baltimore County Landmarks Preservation Committee, and since 1998 has been the official county historian. He has written a charming love letter to a place that he loved in former times, before the wrecking ball arrived and hideous architecture took over.
