Carroll County History Project


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 people who have lived here and by producing documentary programs about the county, local issues, and the experiences of area residents.

The Community Media Center is collecting interviews with local Veterans as part of the Carroll County History Project. Our goal is to recognize their service to our country by adding their oral history interviews to our online archive.  Interviews with local veterans will be broadcast on Cable Channel 19 on November 11th in observance of Veterans Day and will be available for online viewing.


Oral History Videos

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

These stories, from everyday people, help to paint a picture of Carroll County’s history and its changes through the years. Their personal accounts help bring history to life, and put a name and a face on local events.

Each month, a select interviews are broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 19 in Carroll County. For a list of air dates and times, please visit the
