The ghosts of America’s past reside in her legends, documents, historic sites and structures. History, without visual context, often lacks the sense of place that stirs the imagination. By mining information stored in books, documents, maps and photos and presenting it online, we hope to provide a spark… A spark that will stir you to see past the veil of everyday life and envision the history that has gone on before.

Western Maryland History is dedicated to the recognition, documentation and the preservation of our history, historic sites and structures. Join us in the effort to highlight our past and preserve it for future generations.


The Western Maryland Historical Website is made possible by donations from: Cutts & Case Shipyard | LWRCI | Laguna Tools
