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.


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 ExperienceCarroll County Veterans and Local Documentaries. All contain video interviews of local residents who shared their personal story. We invite you to explore our collection.
