Why I Support London Town: The Atkins Story

After G. Pope Atkins retired from teaching, he and his wife Joan moved to the Eastern Shore to enjoy the woods. Unfortunately, Pope was soon diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and living on the Shore became too difficult. Instead, the couple came back to Annapolis, moving into an apartment. While the apartment was convenient to medical appointments and other needs, it lacked the beautiful woods of their previous home. A friend recommended visiting Historic London Town and Gardens, as it was not far away.


The Atkins came at the end of April in 2012 and after enjoying the gardens, immediately became members. Ever since then, they have remained members and visited regularly. They often bring friends, including a couple whose husband also has Alzheimer’s. He and Pope had both worked in the woods of Idaho years ago, so London Town gives them a chance to relive their youth together. Although the illness has affected their short-term memories, the two men still enjoy wandering the woods and discussing the trees.

Your Donation Helps the Next Generation: Dylan's Story

After Dylan Bacon finished high school, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. So he took a minimum wage job at a sub shop, working in the back kitchen. But he knew he wanted more.


He started classes at his local community college, trying to figure out some sort of direction. He knew he at least wanted to be outside and working with his hands.

He found a job at Historic London Town & Gardens. At London Town, Dylan fell in love with the gardens. This became a place where he could be outside, learn new things, and truly make a difference. He says, “This has been hands-down the favorite job I’ve ever had.”


When Dylan started at the community college, he figured he’d just get his Associate’s degree. But after discovering London Town, Dylan knew he wanted more. He transferred to Delaware State University to pursue a four-year degree in horticulture. Last semester, he made Dean’s List. Now he’s even considering going for his Master’s degree.


We are grateful for all that Dylan has accomplished at London Town. While we were sorry to lose him, we’re excited to see him pursue his passions. We can’t wait to see where he’ll end up. Who knows – maybe it’ll even be back at London Town one day. But if not, we know Dylan is going to succeed wherever he goes.


Please donate today to make sure that London Town can continue its work in education and preservation. We can only be a place that inspires passion with your help. Thank you for your donation. Thank you for helping more Dylans.
