Welcome to The Historical Society of Carroll County, Maryland

In today’s mobile society, history—especially family and community history—allows people to find their “roots” and become invested in their community and its future. History is not just dates, one after the other. It is multidisciplinary, complex. Music, art, and literature intertwine with entrepreneurship, scientific innovation, politics, religion, and philosophy. HSCC is Carroll County’s premier storyteller, using all its resources (artifacts, documents, expertise) to create true stories of the people, places, events, cultures, and traditions that make Carroll County unique and place it within the broader context of American history. HSCC has a significant role to play in providing interactive and multigenerational educational programming to serve its current audiences and attract new ones.
