One of Rob's more fascinating artifacts is on display at the Taneytown branch of the New Windsor State Bank - the very first edition of the Enterprise newspaper from Uniontown, dated October 15, 1859. The description below the framed edition reads: "Ist Edition and 1st Volume of the Uniontown, MD Enterprise Newspaper. This paper is dated October 15th, 1859 and it is rare. On the reserve side is a historic description of John Brown's raid at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. John Brown's raid at Harper's Ferry was the tipping point to the beginning of the Civil War."
If you've been here before, you'll notice that things look a bit different, but hopefully, it's still pretty familiar. We've moved to a new system and that made it necessary to make a few changes here as well. Unfortunately, the biggest change is that our visitors will ned to create new accounts as those were not able to be transferred over - it's a simple process though and you'll soon be back up and running.
As always, Rob is roaming around the county, seeking artifacts! Meanwhile, some re-arranging of the site is going on, to make it easier to see some of the latest artifacts, so don’t be alarmed that things look a bit different here!
