This short driving tour begins at the location of Morris Memorial Hospital which provided medical care for hundreds of children between 1936 and 1960. The trail continues to Milton's historic Mud River Covered Bridge in the city's famous Pumpkin Park followed by a stop at Blenko Glass. The tour also includes the public library, the former home of Mountaineer Opry House, several historic buildings and markers, and static displays of historic military equipment. The tour concludes with the grave of Sampson Sanders who freed each of his slaves and provided funds for them to acquire both land and freedom. Please note that the Sanders grave is located on private property that requires permission before anyone can visit the site. The landowners are happy to allow visitors with advance notice.
