Cambridge Has Pulse Again According to Shop Owners

Posted:

Cambridge, Md.- After decades of mostly empty storefronts, Cambridge appears to be in its own sort of renaissance.

Carol Levy Ruark, owner of "A Few of My Favorite Things" says when she first opened her business ten years ago, the town had potential to grow.

"You could feel the pulse.  It may have been quiet, it may have been slow, but you knew it was going to get there kicking and screaming, and now we're not kicking and screaming anymore." said Ruark.

Another business that has watched the town grow is Snappers Restaurant, which has been a staple in the community for 20 years now.

"It has drastically changed.  Because for the longest time, there were just two restaurants." said Laura Sydnor, owner of Snappers.  She says while it's great that the downtown has bloomed, the rest of Cambridge should not be forgotten.

"We've got the beautiful brick roads, we've got all the potential in this town.  And we just need to open it up and realize it goes a little bit more than just main street, and it's all around.  All this water and all this around us is what makes Cambridge." said Sydnor.  She says she thinks Cambridge could become a small version of downtown Annapolis on the Eastern Shore.

Both say they are glad to have made Dorchester County, and Cambridge, their homes for the past few decades.
