History Conversations REWIND: “The Great Road”: Route 355 from Georgetown to Frederick

April 29 - May 5

This year-long series on “Paths to the Present” explores the development of the Rockville Pike, also known as Route 355 and nicknamed “The Great Road.” It is the most heavily-traveled road in the county and a centuries-old landmark, originally a footpath used by the native people. The sites along the Pike from Georgetown to Frederick reveal the extremes of urban, suburban and rural landscapes existing in multiple stages of transformation.

Originally aired in 2006 as part of the “Paths to the Present” cable series
Available April 29 – May 5.
