Jonathan Hager House open for the season

April 09, 2013

The Jonathan Hager House and Museum opened Friday, April 5, and will remain open through December.

This year, the home, in Hagerstown’s City Park along Key Street, will be open for extended hours on the weekends.

The Hager House is open for self-guided tours on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The home is also available for tour by appointment Sunday through Thursday.

On June 5, 1739, Jonathan Hager purchased 200 acres of land and dubbed his tract “Hager’s Fancy.” Placards throughout the home tell the story of Hager’s family and their way of life during Hagerstown’s earliest years.

The Jonathan Hager House and Museum also will be open during the Museum Ramble slated for May 4 and 5 and during Railroad Heritage Days on May 18 and 19.

Docents and volunteers to help expand the hours of the Hager House are being sought. If you are interested in assisting, contact Amy Riley with the City of Hagerstown’s Parks and Recreation Department at 301-739-8577, ext. 180.
