Call in to speak with the host
Hello Everyone! My name is Michelle Cornwell-Jordan, I'm your host and with my co-host Jamie B Musings, we will go behind history and speak with Mr. Charles Reid, whose family owned much of the land that is now Prince William Forest Park in Northern VA.
Before it became Prince William Forest Park, the land belonged to the communities of Hickory, Joplin and Batestown.
Eventually, the land was taken and then used by the Office of Strategic Services(forerunner to the CIA), as a training camp for spies during World War II.
In History: The lost land of Hickory Ridge, Joplin and Batestown, which became Prince William Forest VA.
