New Online Travel Itinerary Celebrates Virginia's Historic Piedmont Region

On July 11, 2000, the National Register of Historic Places unveiled its newest travel itinerary, "Journey Through Hallowed Ground." This new travel itinerary features an online tour covering 64 historic places in a 75 mile region, highlighting historic sites from the 1700's to the present century. The National Register, in partnership with Scenic America, created the travel itinerary highlighting Virginia's Piedmont region which honors the soldiers, statesman, farmers, free blacks and slaves who fought, toiled, and governed in the region. The Piedmont region, called the "cradle of democracy" for its association with Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, James Monroe and Supreme Court Justice John Marshall, became one of the most contested grounds in the Civil War. The itinerary reflects both the early American experience and the Civil War with such sites as Monticello and Manassas Battlefield. Other sites include historic districts, churches, battlefields, taverns and mills found in the eight county region of the Piedmont. Following U.S. Route 15, the online travel itinerary provides a map which can be broken down into 3 detailed site maps.

Each of the Piedmont historic sites has a brief written description of the site's significance, including color photographs, directions and public accessibility information. At the bottom of each page, the visitor will also find a navigation bar containing links to four essays that explain more about Piedmont history, the Civil War in the region, and Preserving the Piedmont. "Journey Through Hallowed Ground" is an example of the Department of Interior's strategy to revitalize communities by promoting public awareness of history and can be found at the National Register of Historic Places.
