From the Maryland Geological Survey’s website:

The I-68 road cut through the crest of Sideling Hill in western Washington County , Maryland , created one of the best geologic exposures in the northeastern United States . Revealing a cross section through a synclinal ridge, this massive cut has proven to be a significant educational and research tool and tourist attraction.

The Exhibit Center is now housed at the Hancock Museum and Visitor Center The museum’s website provides minimal information about the exhibit, but you can download an informative brochure at Sideling from the Maryland Geological Survey.
