A Piece of History

Standing on main street in Westminster, Maryland you can see history in the buildings that line the street. Carroll County is full of interesting historical sites and facts. Here is just one interesting piece. The United States Postal Service selected Carroll County to test the service, at the time it was called Rural Free Delivery (RFD). With a little imagination you can see the horse drawn wagon in front of the post office on April 3, 1899 preparing to head out for the inaugural mail delivery in the country.  The controversy at the time, swirled around the negative impact RFD would have on local businesses. People would no longer have to go into town to visit the post office and retrieve their mail or parcels and therefore, less frequent visits to local merchants.
