Carroll County

Carroll County is rich in history and tradition. Civil War troops from both sides trekked and camped along our scenic roads on their fateful march to Gettysburg. The Carroll County Farm Museum offers visitors a glimpse into the workings of a 19th century farm and hosts the immensely popular Maryland Wine Festival.
