Preservation Maryland, with the assistance and generous support of the Maryland Department of Transportation and State Highway Administration, is pleased to announce the findings of a recently completed dendrochronology report which confirms 417 North Jonathan is constructed with some of Hagerstown’s oldest timbers.
Organizations like Preservation Maryland aren’t just preserving the past – we’re investing in our future. In just the past year we’ve invested heavily in our work and refused to accept the mounting challenges as a reason to retreat or hold our position. But – trust me as I say this – we simply cannot rest on our past victories. The future demands action – and with your support, we will make 2021 a year to celebrate.
After months of exhaustive research, Preservation Maryland and its consultant, Rivanna Archaeological Services, completed the effort to trace the history, context, and potential location of the long-missing French and Indian War-era Fort Tonoloway on Maryland’s Western Frontier.
