Speaker: Kevin Brandt, Superintendent, C&O Canal National Historical Park (NHP)
Topic: It is always a pleasure to have Superintendent Brandt update us on the beloved, constantly changing National Park on our doorstep. Please bring your questions and concerns to the meeting.
As always, the public is encouraged to attend our meetings.
When farmers bartered for supplies at Perry Store in Offutt’s Crossroad in 1880, Potomac was an agricultural community where transportation relied on the C&O Canal and horse-drawn wagons on dirt roads. Today, we see something far different.
Yet much remains constant. Great Falls, the Potomac River, and the Canal still draw us. Forested stream valleys, rural roads, and Potomac Village still define our community. The look and feel of Potomac today is no accident. Much of what we hold dear is due to the vigilance of volunteers working to preserve what is best here – a community that values our history, the environment, and our role as “Green Wedge” in the overall vision of county planners.
We invite you to become one of the team to insure the continued beauty of this area. If you are interested in preserving the beauty of Potomac, please become a member.
