From Terry Hartison:
As I was driving on Route 40 the other day from Baltimore to Harford County, I came upon a town that is spelled three different ways. Joppatowne, Joppatown or Joppa Town? The first thing that i thought was that there must be several thousand people living here with a spelling disorder, but than I saw Dion Guthries campaign sign and I saw that he spelled it “Joppatown”
I decided to do some research when I arrived at home and found out that Dion Guthri is spelling it wrong along with the people that run the Flea Market. All the maps read “Joppatowne” and 3 history books I found refer to it as Joppa, or the town at Joppa. I have a funny feeling that homes aren’t selling too well there if people don’t know where they’re moving to.
So would someone, or some group, please correct all the spelling errors in Joppatowne? After all, Joppatowne must be the correct spelling because there are two schools spelled this way, Joppatowne Elementary and Joppatowne High School.
