“The Great Wagon Road”

The Study Trip will emphasize the early material culture of the Great Wagon Road that stretched from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania southward to North Carolina. Following in the footsteps of the 2017 MESDA Summer Institute, the travelers will experience the region’s economic, social, and cultural history through visits to museums and private collections as well as lectures on their journey along portions of the Great Wagon Road including areas of southern Pennsylvania; Hagerstown, Maryland, and Winchester, Virginia, as well as Rockingham, Shenandoah, Page, and Augusta counties in the Valley of Virginia.

More information will be posted soon.
