Before the 9/24/11 Bread and Cheese Creek Cleanup in the North Point Section
Trash, yard and construction debris in Bread and Cheese Creek in the North Point Area where we will be conducting a cleanup on Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 8 AM - 2 PM.

Our cleanups are part of an ongoing effort clean the entire stream by 2014 in preparation for the War of 1812 Bicentennial Celebration. (Bread and Cheese Creek has been noted as one of the possible highlighted location on the Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail) The creek played a rather significant part in the Battle of North Point which took place on September 12, 1814. Both the American and British Troops camped along its banks. It is rumored that the young heroes Daniel Wells (19) and Henry McComas (18) used the stream channel to sneak up on British General Robert Ross killing him with their muskets before being killed in return fire. This important part of our history should not be left the eyesore it currently is.
