On another note, the community of Halethorpe was also the site of two important events that happened in the history of the United States.
On Nov. 1, 1910, Baltimore hosted one of the country's first air shows. Located on Baltimore & Ohio Railroad property in Halethorpe, the two-week show attracted aviators from around the world and thousands of people. It was the first time seeing a plane for most of the people present at the event. On Nov. 7, 1910, 27-year-old French aviator Hubert Latham attempted to cross the English channel. Unfortunately, he was unable to do so. However, he did become the first person to land a plane in the water, the first person to fly over Baltimore, and the first person to fly a planned route over a city.
Also held at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad property, the Fair of the Iron Horse took place from Sept. 24, 1927, to Oct. 8, 1927. It was in celebration of B&O's first 100 years of service to the public. More than 1.25 million people attended this event. Some of the features included were stationary exhibitions and pageants with Native American Indians, horseback riders, Conestoga wagons, and the evolution of locomotives.
