Shades of Death

Piney Grove, MD 21532

This area was once a stand of trees so thick that daylight rarely penetrated. Despite the beauty and grandeur of the forest, highwaymen found this portion of the road the perfect cover for robbery. Travelers took up arms when riding in this area. Eventually, the forest was cut down, but the name and legend lives on.
