    A Message from former Board Member, Art Palaia

    Mission Message to HSCC members:

    We should all know about the “What” and the “How” of th Historical Society of Carroll County by now. These are regularly on display in our campus of historic buildings which include the Shriver-Weybright Gallery and the recently renovated Sherman-Fisher-Shellman house, our monthly Box Lunch Talks, the spring and fall visits by enthusiastic school children, the schedule of bus tours to historic sites, our special events like Teas, the Spring Soiree, and Antiques Appraisal, and our publications, like the Carroll History Journal. But what’s the “Why” behind all of this?

    Why do we do it, and why are you kind enough to support us? That answer is a bit more complicated. It involves providing for the greater good, preserving our local roots and the role they played in our national story, ensuring that we leave behind a legacy of heirlooms and heritage that is the birthright of every generation to follow, and searching for lessons in the past that might guide us to a brighter future. You can’t really put these kinds of things in a convenient box, yet they are every bit as important as any pile of bricks and mortar or bus trip. That’s because the “why” we are represents “who” we are. It is our mission statement, and the solemn promise that we won’t forget the generations that have come before.

    Your support is essential. Donations to HSCC's Annual Fund are fully tax-deductible and allow us to increase our educational programming, care for our collections and maintain our historic buildings. Contributions also enable us to offer special exhibitions, programs and events. Please consider supporting the Historical Society of Carroll County.

    For more information on how you can help, call Executive Director, Gainor Davis at 410-848-6494 Ext. 202 or email her at Gainor@HSCCmd.org.

    Thank you for your support!
