From bank robbers to bootleggers, Carroll County has been the scene of some memorable crimes. HSCC curator of collections Cathy Baty takes a light-hearted look at some of the more unusual criminal activities in the County.


Life on a farm for a child was very busy. We will explore the routines of a day through the eyes of a child. Children will participate in dramatic play, activities, stories, and create a craft.

The Mason-Dixon Line:
The Story Behind the Boundary
Born as the result of a bitter territorial dispute over royal land grants, the Mason-Dixon Line was surveyed between 1763 and 1767 to settle the boundaries for Pennsylvania and Maryland. After 1820, when the Missouri Compromise created political conditions which made the line important to the history of slavery, it became associated with the division between the free and slave states. Today the line is still seen by many as a symbolic dividing line for regional attitudes and customs. This program explores the story of the line, which runs through our land and our history, along with the perceptions that have developed about the boundary.
