Agathe von Trapp, known as Lisel in the movie "The Sound of Music," has lived a quiet life in Pikesville since 1958. At age 91, she self-published her memoirs, "Agathe von Trapp: Memories Before and After The Sound of Music," she dispels many historical inaccuracies in the movie. For instance, she didn't date a boy who went to fight for the Nazis. And the von Trapps didn't cross the Alps to escape; they merely crossed the street to the train station. She is shown at her home in Pikesville.
