Find Your Treasure at the Annual Historic National Road Yard and Sidewalk Sale

May 23, 2013

West Friendship, Maryland – Enjoy the “thrill of the hunt” by attending or participating in Maryland’s longest continuous yard sale.   From Baltimore City to Garrett County, yard and sidewalk sales will take place along 170 miles of Maryland’s National Road from May 29 – June 2, 2013.

The Historic National Road Yard Sale provides individuals with the opportunity to reconnect with their past along America’s first interstate, by visiting historic sites, cultural attractions and enjoying all the resources of the US 40 scenic byway.  Since 1806, the National Road has been one of trade and commerce, connecting all major ports and today you can relive that experience by traveling this historic highway in search of that must have item.  Along the way enjoy great dining and unique attractions located in quaint towns and vibrant Main Street communities of Ellicott City, Frederick, Middletown, Cumberland and Frostburg.

The Maryland National Road Association encourages businesses, civic organizations, non-profits, churches and residents to host and stage their own yard, garage and/or side-walk sale along Maryland’s National Road.  There is no fee to participate and MNRA will keep a list of known participants for those who inquire about locations of sales.  Please send your name, date of sale, address, hours and other important details such as items available for sale, and parking information.

The Maryland National Road Association is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization that preserves and promotes the economic vitality, cultural, scenic and historic resources along the Maryland National Road from Baltimore to Garrett County.  To learn more about the Maryland National Road and the MNRA, please visit our website at
