Havre de Grace, Maryland

Havre de Grace is a city in northern Maryland at the head of the Chesapeake Bay. Named by French General Lafayette, it maintained a strong French influence during and after the War of 1812, in which it played a key role in turning back British forces. At various times since the town has been hubs and home to industry, horse breeding and racing, canal building and quarrying, maritime recreation, military housing, and now golf. Today it survives as a mixture of all between several large cities in the northeastern megaregion, with a population floating between 10,000 and 15,000, swelling to due to base relocation (or BRAC) which has transplanted thousands of new residents to the area.

Its location was once closely considered when choosing sites for the nation's capital, which of course went to the area that's presently Washington DC.
