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.

CMC VETERANS SALUTE CONTINUES 

The Community Media Center continues our salute to local veterans with ongoing programming thru December. Tune in to Cable Channel HD-1086 every Monday and Friday at 9:00 am and Tuesday and Thursday at 9:00 pm. Each week we'll feature new interviews with local veterans. Interviews will also be broadcast on Channel 19

Each week you'll hear fascinating stories of military service from local individuals representing all branches of the military. These veterans experiences span the decades from WWII to Korea, Vietnam to Afghanistan, Iraq and beyond. These important personal accounts 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 conflict or peace.

The goal of this project is to recognize our local veterans, honor them for their service and preserve their memories of service for future generations. 

These Carroll County Veterans Interviews are brought to you by Terry's Tag and Title.  

All interviews become a part of the Carroll County History Project’s permanent, online video archive.

The Community Media Center has nearly 80 interviews in the current Veterans Oral History Collection.  If you or someone you know is interested in sharing their story of service, please contact us at 410-386-4415.
