                        About Hiking through History
Hiking through History is a project of the Brandywine Creek Greenway, a regional planning initiative of the Brandywine Conservancy that envisions a 40-mile- long conservation and recreation corridor from the City
of Wilmington, Delaware to Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. Multiple partners aided the Brandywine Conservancy in the design and development of the map and brochure, including representatives from the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia and the Chester County Planning Commission. Hiking through History was made possible by the generous support of the William Penn Foundation as well as the Greater Wilmington, Chester
and Delaware County Convention and Visitors Bureaus.
