An interactive giant county map and timeline of county history will be created. The map and timeline will be used by schools, classrooms and organizations during the 2016 bicentennial celebration and beyond. The giant map and timeline will serve as an educational tool for people of all ages to learn about our states founding people and places.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.
