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, she carried people back and forth from Clear Spring to Hagerstown for all sorts of errands.

Back in the early 1920s, she hauled people to work, school and baseball games. She also carried milk to the creamery for farmers and  delivered The Daily Mail. C. Edward Miller was the main bus driver.
