Did you know?

Did you ever hear of Miss Clear Spring? It wasn't a beauty pageant, it was a bus.

Owned by Lewis Blair, it carried residents back and forth from Clear Spring to Hagerstown for all sorts of errands.

In the early 1920s, it hauled residents to work, school and even to baseball games. Not only did it haul people, but it also carried milk to the creamery for farmers and it delivered The Daily Mail. C. Edward Miller was the main bus driver.
