Scenic America is proud to be a partner in The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Initiative whose mission is to find a way to balance economic development and historic preservation. This site follows US Route 15 on a 175-mile course from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, through Frederick County, Maryland and ends in Charlottesville, Virginia.
