Maryland Milestones Maryland Milestones/Anacostia Trails Heritage Area 


Maryland Milestones/Anacostia Trails Heritage Area (ATHA) is the regional Heritage Area program – part of a system of Certified Maryland Heritage Areas – for northern Prince Georges’ County and the Washington D.C. Metro area.  We celebrate unique historical innovations, major community moments, and amazing resources of the region.  The Heritage Area is a place to discover your own personal milestones – from kayaking or hiking to biking the trails and from experiencing history to enjoying arts!  Bordered by Washington D.C., Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, and the Baltimore/Washington Parkway, the Heritage Area encompasses approximately 84 square miles.

World War I

Anacostia Trails Heritage Area will be working with partners throughout the Heritage Area on projects related to WWI.  Specifically, we are considering the Peace Cross in Bladensburg and the College Park Aviation Museum as two major components of this program.  ATHA, Inc. will help to market additional events that will be developed at their partner sites.
