Route 30 tour planned for July 29
Route 30, which cuts through North Carroll, may not be quite as famous as the storied Route 66 of song and television, but it does have an interesting history.
Joe Getty, director of the Historical Society of Carroll County, will be the guest lecturer on the Northeast Travel Bureau's sixth tour, "Historical Route 30," beginning at 10 a.m. July 29.
The tour originates at the Mason/Dixon marker on Garrett Road and as the tour proceeds south along Route 30 to Arcadia, Mr. Getty will discuss the history of the area, as well as notable examples of local architecture.
The tour departs from the Ames parking lot at the North Carroll Shopping Center, Route 30, in Greenmount and returns at 4 p.m.
The cost of the tour is $10 and includes lunch at Dean's in Hampstead. Pre-registration is required.
Those interested in going on the tour can register at the Manchester Town Hall, 3208 York St., 239-3200 or Hyatt's Animal Boutique, 1231 N. Main St., Hampstead, 239-3938.
