History project

Welcome!

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.

Each month, local interviews are broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 19 and HD 1086 in Carroll County.

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.

The Carroll County History Project is honoring our local veterans by recording their stories of service to our Country with a special all-day broadcast on November 11th. We will be featuring veterans interviews on HD-1086 and Channel 19. The interviews will also become a part of the Carroll County History Project’s permanent, online video archive.

The Community Media Center has nearly 70 interviews in the current Veterans Oral History Collection that features individuals who served in all branches of the military and includes the personal accounts of local veterans who served during WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.  If you or someone you know is interested in sharing their story of service, please contact us at 410-386-4415.
