DeAndre Spriggs

Maintenance Supervisor

Age: 25

Lives near Chesapeake Beach


How did you come to work here? My dad is a maintenance supervisor. I thought I would follow in his footsteps. London Town was somewhat close by so I applied. I am building up money by living with my parents. I am saving to go to trade school, maybe as a mechanic or working on HVAC systems.


I heard you had a cool car? I drive a 2020 red Ford Mustang EcoBoost. Cars have been a love of mine since I was a kid. I helped my dad fix cars (at age 10 he started to allow me to hold the flashlight for oil changes). I like getting an engine to start. The sound of a car engine revving is the best.


What is the favorite part of your job? Seeing happy faces during weddings. It is great to be part of some people’s milestone memories. Some of the kids who went on a school tour when they were students are now getting married here. It just puts a smile on my face. I also think its important for us to be able to re-live history. Immersive tours and re-enactments are just fun.


What would you like guests to know? This is a beautiful place, trash belongs in a trash can not in the gardens. Also, I wish parents knew how much kids can damage our plants by running through the garden beds.


Do you have any unusual hobbies? I collect colorful rocks. I once wrote “Peace and Love” on a rock while at Sandy Point Beach Park, and someone put it on Snapchat and I saw it and recognized the rock!
