The Awesome Hike In Maryland That Will Take You Straight To An Abandoned Town
Have you ever heard of the abandoned town of Daniels? A little over a century ago, this little Maryland town thrived in a woodland area of what is now Patapsco Valley State Park. The townsfolk depended on the local textile mill for work and for a while, business was good. That is, until the 1960s. The mill had run its course and 90 families were informed that they’d have to move away. While there are no people living in this spot today, the town’s remnants have been left behind and we know where to find them…
