Maryland Milestones/Anacostia Trails Heritage Area (ATHA) is the regional Heritage Area program – part of a system of Certified Maryland Heritage Areas – for northern Prince Georges’ County and the Washington D.C. Metro area. We celebrate unique historical innovations, major community moments, and amazing resources of the region. The Heritage Area is a place to discover your own personal milestones – from kayaking or hiking to biking the trails and from experiencing history to enjoying arts!
Bordered by Washington D.C., Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Montgomery County, and the Baltimore/Washington Parkway, the Heritage Area encompasses approximately 84 square miles. Learn about our history and historic sites. Come and enjoy our world class theaters and musical venues, artist studios, and public art. Explore our abundant farmers markets and community festivals. Take a boat trip down the Anacostia and Patuxent Rivers; hike natural areas; bike the region’s trails; and enjoy the outdoors. Shop, dine, or take a walk through our unique small communities. Maryland Milestones and the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area will connect you with our history, culture, arts and natural resources. Call or email for more information!
