Crumbs from the Cracker Barrel 3/21



Early on the morning of March 20, 1917, fire broke out in one of the trolleys housed in the Hagerstown and Frederick Railway's carbarn at the corner of Summit Avenue and Howard Street in Hagerstown. The tragedy, termed as the company's worst single disaster, completely destroyed the carbarn and its contents. In December of 1917, the H&F opened a new brick facility at the corner of Summit Avenue and Lee Street in what had been an old powerhouse.
