National Park Seminary on TV

County Cable Montgomery’s program on local history, Paths to the Present, revisited NPS to see the progress made since their earlier program in 2000 when SOS was advocating to preserve the property. In the spring of 2014 they found the buildings and grounds revitalized as a residential community. Watch the updated 2014 program on the Montgomery County Website.
