Pew and violets
During Sunday services, Gary Memorial United Methodist Church, a small church in Daniels inside Patapsco Valley State Park, dedicated this pew where Gov. William Donald Schaefer sat when he occasionally attended services, and unveiled a plaque in his honor. A pot of African violets, Shaefer's favorite flower, was placed next to the pew for the dedication service. Schaefer left $10,000 to this church in his will, praising the friendliness of the congregation.
