At a meeting of the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority (MHAA), the authority voted by unanimous vote to expand the Mountain Maryland Gateway to the West (MMGTW) Heritage Areas boundary to include the property of 1249 Bumble Bee Road. This parcel, owned by the Garrett County Government, is managed and maintained by the Deep Creek Lake Lions Club (DCLLC) and hosts a ball field, pavilion, dog park, ten miles of trails, and historical and art exhibits honoring the life of Garrett County’s first frontiersman, Meshach Browning.

Garrett County’s Mountain Maryland Gateway to the West Heritage area was awarded $168,483.00 in grants for the fiscal year 2022. By supporting capital projects and educational activities, the grants spark renewed interest in Maryland culture from residents and visitors, boosting tourism-related jobs.
