Did you know?

Did you ever hear of Miss Clear Spring? It was not a beauty pageant. It was a bus. Owned by Lewis Blair, it carried people back and forth from Clear Spring to Hagerstown for all sorts of errands.

In the early 1920s, it hauled people to work, school and even to baseball games.

Not only did it haul residents, it also carried milk to the creamery for farmers and delivered The Daily Mail. C. Edward Miller was the main bus driver.
