• Traveling 219: Audio Stories from Maryland

  • The Traveling 219 project coordinated by Friends of Pocahontas County Free Libraries (WV) works to unearth and document stories of people and places to reveal how life has been lived and how the historic, recreational and cultural characteristics has changed along US Route 219.  The project also highlights the cultural uniqueness of the Appalachian region where small towns, rural areas and natural beauty continue to characterize and shape life.  The Mountain Maryland Gateway to the West Heritage Area provided a mini-grant which helped produce five of the Maryland selections.  Explore additional stories at www.traveling219.com!
