Hagerstown almanac available at welcome centers

July 17, 2008

The Hagerstown Town and Country Almanack is being distributed at local visitor and welcome centers, courtesy of the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and The Gruber Almanack Co. headquartered in Hagerstown.

The CVB is making copies of the almanac available free at the Visitor Welcome Center in downtown Hagerstown.

The almanac is an annual publication serving as a source for regional weather predictions, household and farm information, and insights into everyday living.

The almanac has a long history, and is known as the second oldest almanac in the United States, and the longest published family-owned almanac. At 212 years old, it's one of the most talked about almanacs in the nation.

Published by The Gruber Almanack Co., the almanac remains family owned and operated by the heirs of John Gruber.

First begun in 1797, the guide is more than a listing of holidays and eclipses; it also includes information about the most endearing and enduring weather folklore.
