Accokeek Heritage Tourism Study
Undertaken for the Greater Accokeek Civic Association, the Accokeek Foundation, and the Alice Ferguson Foundation, the Accokeek Heritage Tourism Study will identify and analyze heritage resources and the pressures they face, determine how best to make those resources known or better known, and identify common heritage themes to enhance connectivity and accessibility.
Solutions identified in the study will not threaten resources themselves nor the community’s quality of life. The study will focus on the four major categories of resources described within 2013 Approved Subregion 5 Master Plan, Planning Areas 83 and 84 (portions of): archeological, historical, and cultural resources; architectural resources; natural resources and recreational resources.
The project kickoff meeting with the consultants was held August 16, 2021. The consultants are now beginning background research and preparations for a steering committee work session planned for the first week of October.
