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.

The Historical Society is open for limited services

The Library is closed to in-person research, but is taking requests. The Sherman-Fisher-Shellman House and the galleries in Cockey’s are open by appointment only. Please click Here to read a letter from our Executive Director about our safety measures.
