Frostburg celebrates bicentennial

Frostburg is celebrating its bicentennial this weekend. Despite the name Frostburg is not named after Jack Frost or the weather, though the town can become quite frosty with the winds and snow coming down from the Big Savage Mountain. This beautiful historic town in Western Maryland was founded along the path of the National Road originally called Mount Pleasant. The name was changed to Frostburg in honor of Meshach and Catherine Frost, who in 1812 built the first home and tavern for stagecoaches. This weekend will be very pleasant a good time to get out and explore the area.
