The Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau has produced a new brochure called "Bridges of Washington County Maryland. " It showcases 21 historic stone arch structures that span Conococheague Creek and Antietam Creek, and its tributaries. Washington County is unique in Maryland, because nowhere else can one find so many early- to mid- 19th-century limestone arch bridges, along with several stone arch aqueducts along the C&O Canal. The concept for the brochure came from Katherine Campbell Francomano of DoubleDog Productions.

HAGERSTOWN -- When the Northwood Swim Club was envisioned more than 50 years ago, the stated goal on the brochure was, "To make Hagerstown a better place to live. " That brochure was created in 1958 to sell the idea of a private family-style pool at 13116 Pennsylvania Ave. It also touted the benefits of paying $200 plus tax for a family membership - a tidy sum back then. "Local banks have been contacted and will grant loans for this purpose to qualified applicants," the 1958 brochure said.
