Avalon Area Historic Wayside Exhibits

block Patapsco Valley State Park

This project tells the story of the Patapsco River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay in the Baltimore area, that is considered the "cradle of the industrial revolution" in Maryland. The valley has been transformed from a chain of 19th century industrial towns to a greenway park that protects water quality and provides recreational opportunities in the Baltimore area. A series of exhibits located along the Grist Mill Trail and by the Avalon Visitor Center will encourage visitation to the trail and visitor center. Through wayside exhibits and kiosks, visitors will make connections between their lives, the resources within this valley, and the Chesapeake Bay, inspiring them to park and bay stewardship. Visitors will see through maps how the park is connected to the bay, gain an awareness of the valley's history, its changes and how these have affected water quality here and in the bay.

Amount Funded: $26,800.00

Start Date: 09/04/2004
