I know this should probably be in another area like Maryland Shelters but there seems to be so little traffic there I figured I`d never get an answer and needed one fairly soon....Does anyone know what exactly happened to the old Weaverton Shelter and what year it happened? (There`s a photo in my gallery)..This shelter was down on the Potomac River and I used to stay in it often but stayed there for the last time in 1978...I`m pretty sure it was gone when I visited the area in maybe 1990(?) and only the concrete slab of the floor was there....Was this shelter torn down or did it get washed away in a flood,etc and what year?..Thanks in advance

The best source for this information would likely be PATC. To email them your question, click info@patc.net (info@patc.net).

You might also call ATC.

The shelter to which you referred was there at least through June 1980.
