Welcome!

The Carroll County History Project was created by the Community Media Center (CMC) in 2008 as an ongoing, multi-part effort to preserve the history of Carroll County, Maryland by collecting videotaped memories of the people who live here and by producing documentary programs about the county, local issues, and the unique experiences of area residents.

These stories, from everyday people, help to paint a picture of Carroll County’s history and how it has changed throughout the years. These personal accounts help bring history to life, and put a name and a face on local events. 

Our online Oral History Video Collection is divided into several playlists: Carroll County Remembers, Carroll County: Through the Eyes of the Black ExperienceCarroll County Veterans and Local Documentaries. All contain video interviews with local residents who shared their personal story. We invite you to explore our collections below. 

 

 

VETERANS RECORD

Carroll County residents have a long and distinguished history of military service.  It’s a proud and honored tradition that should be remembered, recognized and preserved for future generations. The Carroll County History Project'S Veterans Oral History Collection is designed to recognize the contributions Carroll County veterans have made to our Nation by collecting and preserving their stories of service for generations to come.

Local veterans interested in sharing their story should contact the Community Media Center via Email or by calling (410) 386-4415.
