Carroll County, Maryland, has been a crossroads of cultures since the 18th century. Carroll's structures and town plans reflect English and Pennsylvania-German influences. Mile-long streets punctuated by town squares are lined with a variety of stone and brick buildings of various eras. Though progress has altered these plans, the survival rate allows modern viewers to glimpse and compare multiple eras of local history.
This book takes readers on a before and after journey through time. Side-by-side images of the past and present give readers a revealing look at the evolution of Carroll County.
Featuring more than 200 images, old photos of the past connect to the same places today to make history accessible and relevant.
