Special Celebrations Being Planned For Carroll’s 150th Birthday

The Carroll Chamber of Commerce, City of Carroll and many other community partners are planning now for a full weekend of activities this coming July to celebrate 150 years since Carroll was selected as the county seat in 1869. The July 19 through July 21 Sesquicentennial will include activities for all ages, such as community tours, live music and much more. Organizers say they want to provide opportunities to not only honor Carroll’s rich history, but to also bring the community together to celebrate the present and embrace the future. More details about the upcoming Sesquicentennial schedule will be forthcoming in the near future. The county and city of Carroll are named after Charles Carroll of Carollton, Md., who was the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence.
