Nature Calls: A Walk on Greenbury Point

Perhaps you’ve seen the three “Eiffel” towers on the horizon across the Severn River from downtown Annapolis. Ever wondered why those towers are there or what’s under them? That’s Greenbury Point, the Navy-owned peninsula that separates the Annapolis Harbor and Severn River from the Chesapeake Bay. Nineteen radio towers stood on Greenbury Point until 1999—that’s when dynamite brought down sixteen of them, leaving three behind. Also left behind is a hidden treasure trove of nature trails and scenery.
