The Carroll County History Project continues to collect oral histories and information about our local African American Churches as part of our documentary “The Rock of our Ancestors.” Frances Cullen Thomas, a member and historian for Union Street United Methodist church, shared background information about the church in back of McDaniel College, whose history began 150 yrs. ago. She also shared her family’s history, starting in South Carolina and their migration to Baltimore in the era of WWII, steel production and Sparrows Point. Once complete, Frances interview will be added to our online archive.
We are continuing to collect histories and information about our local churches. If you have information, historical photographs or would like to share your story please contact us at (410) 386-4415 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
