Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway presented the Town of Perryville with a check for $32,678 on Feb. 5 for a Neighborhood Business Works Grant that they collaborated on and received from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development. The purpose of the grant is to help with the restoration of the Rodgers Tavern for future public use as a focal point of downtown Perryville business development. The Tavern was formerly owned by Col. John Rodgers, who operated a ferry crossing often used by General George Washington in the 1700s. LSHG's grant management capability and related technical expertise were instrumental in securing the funding for the grant. Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway is a nonprofit organization based in Darlington whose mission is to stimulate local economic activity by developing a linkage to natural, historic and cultural resources through land and water recreational trails. To date, 22 miles of continuous public recreation trails connecting Harford and Cecil counties have been constructed. The trail system has been designated priority segments of both the Star-Spangled Banner and Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trails. For more information, visit hitourtrails.com.
