Historic development often clustered near abundant natural resources like forests and water and now that many of those traditional paths are using for recreation, historic sites can be connected by walking, kayaking and/or biking! These connections and opportunities were explored during an expert panel at the Old Line State Summit held by Preservation Maryland.
