Exploring Harriet Tubman’s Dorchester County with Amanda Fenstermaker
Maryland’s Eastern Shore is a place rich in history. Dorchester County, founded in 1669, is one of the Shores’ most historic places – a place perhaps most famous for its connection to Harriet Tubman – one of Maryland’s most iconic and daring daughters. This week’s guest Amanda Fenstermaker works tirelessly to market, advocate, and protect her native county’s history. The results are showing as the county is quickly becoming a major tourist destination for those interested in learning about our nation’s African-American history. Join us this week for a journey to the Eastern Shore – a teaser for a real road trip you’ll certainly want to make on your own very soon on this week’s PreserveCast.
Dorchester County isn’t the only well-preserved landscape in Maryland. Learn more about open space conservation efforts in Kent County here.
