Save Historic Antietam Foundation donates $5000 to Antietam National
Battlefield to restore the Historic Piper Farm Lane.
Date: August 17, 2007
This donation will allow the National Park Service to begin work on this
restoration project several years ahead of schedule. Work will include
repairing several areas which have suffered from severe erosion,
installing erosion control devices, construction of a safe tread and
installation of historically accurate fences. Upon completion the Piper
Farm Lane will become a part of the expanding Antietam National
Battlefield Trail System and will be open to the public.
According to Superintendent Howard: The Save Historic Antietam
Foundation has been an active and dedicated partner to the National Park
Service in protecting and preserving the Sharpsburg battlefield. They
are to commended for this gift to the people of the United States.
