Since 1983, the Central Maryland Heritage League has grown from a battlefield protection group. While the South Mountain State Battlefield is one of our prime initiatives, the organization has acquired Dahlgren Chapel, the private family chapel of Madeleine Vinton Dahlgren, located atop South Mountain and the Lamar Center, the site of Dr. Austin A. Lamar's surgical suite and home located in downtown historical Middletown, Maryland.
