Agricultural Reserve Driving Tour

Plan a day trip to explore rural Montgomery County using Heritage Montgomery’s driving tour of the Agricultural Reserve as the perfect guide.

The 60-minute video podcast, the Montgomery Rural Heritage Byway Tour, is divided into five chapters, each showcasing a section of rural Montgomery County.  Stories are presented through narrative, visual materials (photos, drawings, and written materials of the period) and music. The 61-mile scenic tour takes you along many of the county’s rural and rustic roads and along the C&O Canal.  Activities relating to the Civil War figure prominently in many chapters. Historic images, coupled with contemporary shots, allow you to stand in the landscape today and imagine life long ago from the same vantage point.

Download the podcast to your iPod/Mp3 player from iTunes or the Google App Store and enjoy the convenience of your own portable, customized tour.
