Anacostia Trails Heritage Area/Maryland Milestones
About Maryland Milestones
Maryland Milestones, a program established in 2012 by ATHA Inc., highlights the many firsts and “unique” moments which have occurred in the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area. This program brings information about these “milestones” to the public and makes connections between the history, culture, and nature of the region. Additionally, the Maryland Milestones program emphasizes the importance that travel, trade, and communication have played in the region – through turnpikes, highways, parkways, aviation, telegraphs, and train travel. In mid-2012 look for the formal rollout of this program with new signage, information kiosks, and interpretive program trails.
