Glen Updates

The proposed widening of the Beltway section that would adversely affect the historic landscape of National Park Seminary has for the time being been put on hold, but SOS continues to monitor any action that revisits this potential encroachment.

Thanks to a grant from Preservation Maryland and the Maryland Historical Trust, SOS was able to contract for a feasibility study of the most deteriorated features in the Glen—the Grand Staircase, the Grotto hillside, and bridge to the Spring. Repair and restoration are feasible, although expensive, so SOS will plan the next steps to save these features.
