A former presidential retreat nestled deep in the Catoctin mountains in Frederick County has become an unexpected flash point between county residents and a group backed by the Church of Scientology. Trout Run, a 40-acre lodge near Camp David, will be converted to a drug-treatment facility if it can meet a zoning requirement designating it as a historic place.

We explore this unconventional property battle.
