I received the following from Laurie Harding, President of the Hunterstown Preservation Society – very exciting news – and wanted to pass it along to my readers:
Congressman Platt’s office has made some contacts with the folks at “Journey Through Hallowed Grounds”….
For some that may not know…this heritage trail starts in Virginia…and was planning to end in Gettysburg.
Fortunately, after hearing that Hunterstown was included in the Gettysburg Campaign by the Dept.of the Interior (Sept ’06)…and that Hunterstown has made CWPT’s “Top 10 Endangered” battlefield list(March 08)…they were more than willing to extend the heritage trail 4 more miles north…to Hunterstown!
For some strange reason….Straban Township did not ok it….even though it will bring a great deal of monies to our area.
In two weeks, the folks from Journey will be in town to re-visit this plan to include Hunterstown.
Please help us here….by making your thoughts known…
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership will be hosting a Public Meetings to discuss the Draft Corridor Management Plan.
Please mark your calendars and plan to attend:
Adams County, PA: June 18th
Wednesday, June 18, 6:00 PM
Adams County Agricultural & Natural Resources Building 670 Old Harrisburg Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much!
