History Project Header


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.


Veterans Day Salute - Special Broadcast

Special Broadcast - Veterans Day Salute

On November 11, 2020 the Community Media Center will observe Veteran’s Day with a special broadcast featuring interviews with Carroll County Veterans.

The all-day broadcast will start at 9:00 am on Channel HD-1086 and on cable Channel 19.

The special broadcast will include interviews with veterans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. Some individuals saw combat, while others served in support roles, and many had friends who gave the ultimate sacrifice. These important personal accounts can provide powerful insights into the experiences of our local veterans. Through their stories, we can begin to see how military experiences affect every aspect of life, regardless of whether a person served overseas or stateside, during a time of peace or during conflict.

Viewers can watch interviews with Carroll County Veterans and the Carroll County History Project’s other interview collections below.

All contain video interviews with local residents who have shared their personal story.

 The goal of the Veterans Oral History Collection is not only to honor the courage and sacrifice of our local veterans, but also to preserve their memories as a lasting resource to help educate future generations. Their personal accounts help bring history to life, adding a context and perspective that you can’t find in a textbook.
