We'll head to Silver Spring to explore the community's past, present and future. We'll visit the legendary site from whence the community allegedly got its name, and we'll look back on the makeover of its downtown. Plus, we'll tour the home of famous conservationist Rachel Carson, and swing by a much-loved local institution where residents have been duckpin bowling for decades.
