New! Colonial Roads of Maryland
3 sessions, 6 hours
Explore the historically important colonial roads of central and western Maryland. You’ll learn how these roads evolved from Indian trails and trade and migration routes into today’s modern highways. Specific roads include Braddock’s Road, Cumberland Road (US Route 40), the Indian path, and Virginia Road (Route 11). We will also trace General Edward Braddock’s military road, and its importance, from Washington D.C. through Frederick and into Cumberland.
