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.
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.
