Demolition in North Woods

January 11, 2016

just underwayThis house was purchased in September by Civil War Trust with assistance from SHAF. It was located where the tour road and the bypass meet in the west portion of the North Woods. The CW Trust transferred it to SHAF in December. doneHere is what it looks like today! Demolition took place last week, and the land restored to its natural condition. It will be transferred to the National Park Service soon. This purchase and demolition were made possible by the contributions of SHAF members and funds from the now-defunct Western Maryland Interpretive Association. Thanks to all!
