This 4 inch medal is a replica of the iconic Ellicott City clock that stood at the bottom of Main Street, and the ribbon is a replica of the train bridge passing over Main Street.  On the back are the names of the three people who tragically perished during the two floods.

Old Ellicott City was founded in 1772, as a mill town and is home to the B&O Railroad Museum Ellicott City Station, which is the oldest surviving railroad station in America, featuring a depot built in 1831.  It is the original terminus of the first 13 miles of commercial railroad in the country!  It is also a town where several river tributaries come together.

In the afternoon hours of Sunday, May 27th, 2018, a deluge of rain fell in Ellicott City, Maryland, causing a devastating flood that destroyed dozens of businesses and buildings, displaced residents, and took the life of one man, Eddison 'Eddie' A. Hermond.  

This disaster would have been bad enough, but the town had been on the brink of recovery from a similar, devastating flood that occurred just 22 months before (July 30, 2016), during which two people perished in the flood waters (Jessica Watsula & Joseph Blevins).  Many of the businesses had only been re-opened from the 2016 flood for a few weeks, or were days from re-opening when disaster struck again.  

The Ellicott City clock became a symbol of resilience when it was found down river after being washed away during the 2016 flood.  It was found by a citizen and eventually restored to its original condition and location.  The clock was once again swept away during the 2018 flood, and thankfully was found in pieces and recovered.  Hopefully, the clock will once again be restored to its original condition and location, and will stand strong as a symbol of the town's resilience and fortitude.
