History Project Header


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.

The Community Media Center broadcasts interviews from the Carroll County History Project on Comcast Cable Channel 19 and HD 1086 in Carroll County.

All of the interviews in our oral history collection are available for viewing online. The 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 with local residents who have shared their personal story.

 The goal of the Veterans Oral History Collection is not only to honor the courage and sacrifice of our local veterans, but also to preserve their memories as a lasting resource to help educate future generations. Their personal accounts help bring history to life, adding a context and perspective that you can’t find in a textbook.
