National Geographic once called Maryland “America in Miniature,” because we’ve got it all. Mountains, the ocean, big cities, small towns, rolling countryside and more. So when Netflix looked for the perfect place to create Frank Underwood’s America for the hit series “House of Cards,” they chose The Old Line State. Now a new app and self-guided tour lets fans of the show trace the Underwood's rise from South Carolina to the White House without ever leaving Harford County. Frank’s home town of Gafney? It’s actually beautiful downtown Havre de Grace. Frank’s Civil War revelries? They took place in wooded Winters Run in Edgewood. The app and self-guided tour will lead you on your own campaign across 25 pivotal places from the show, including Harford Community College which subbed for Ithaca College, a fateful location in the Underwood story.
