CHESTERTOWN — Historic signage was unveiled Saturday afternoon at the corner of Calvert Street and College Avenue, where for 42 years the Uptown Club was the lifeblood of the local Black community.

Its proprietor, Charles Henry Graves, a former U.S. Army sergeant, was able to bring some of the giants of rhythm and blues and early rock to the neighborhood known as “Santiago.”
