Carroll County, established 1837, county seat Westminster.
News from the County:
Hampstead Councilman David Unglesbee has proposed to restore the nondescript cemetery where the town’s founding family is believed to be buried.
A self-proclaimed history buff, Unglesbee said highlighting local history has become the prerogative of interested citizens and lawmakers because hyper-local history isn’t taught in schools.
Having citizens understand their town’s history “helps them take pride in their community,” Unglesbee told the Times after the Hampstead mayor and council meeting March 12.
