The Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild is pleased to have joined The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership, pledging its continued support for a collaborative Partnership. The Journey Through Hallowed Ground (JTHG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising national and international awareness of the unparalleled history in the region from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to Charlottesville, Virginia. The JTHG has built a strong network of 350 local, regional, and national partnering organizations to develop a common vision to brand and enhance the scenic, historic, recreational, cultural, and natural resources of the region. The JTHG has collaboratively created a National Heritage Area as designated by the United States Congress and signed into law by President Bush in 2008. Among its achievements, the JTHG has completed a Corridor Management Plan for the 280 mile long corridor generally following the Old Carolina Road, and has gained recognition of the road as the 99th National Byway. It has created heritage tourism programs, award winning educational programs, and the Living Legacy Project that commemorates the individual and combined sacrifices of the Civil War fallen by planting a tree for each of the 620,000 soldiers who died in that war. The Loudoun County Bed and Breakfast Guild, many of whose member facilities are themselves steeped in the history of the region, is honored to take part in preserving and sharing our heritage.
