HAGERSTOWN - Hagerstown city officials want to start an exploratory committee to save the historic Alms House from further deterioration. Councilwoman Kelly S. Cromer said the committee, in part, would research possibilities to fund the project. Ideally, she said the money would come from donations and grants. "My hope is not to use (city funding)," she said. The Alms house, built in the 1790s on North Locust Street, served as a hospital for wounded soldiers after the Battle of Gettysburg and as a poor house, among other things.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA. - Not much is known of the fate of Pvt. William H.H. Lowe of Lumpkin County, Ga., other than that the Confederate soldier died Jan. 6, 1862, in a tavern in rural Morgan County. Whatever Lowe's fate - death from battle wounds or exposure to the elements in that cold, snowy January 143 years ago - his memory was honored Saturday with a modest ceremony by a small group of Confederate re-enactors and a crisp new white marble gravestone paid for by the United States government.

HAGERSTOWN A member of the Hagerstown City Council wants to save the deteriorating Alms House on North Locust Street and possibly restore the structure as a Civil War museum. Councilwoman Penny M. Nigh said the museum is just an idea at this point. "We could make this place for everyone," she said. Built in the 1790s, the Alms House once provided shelter for the poor and served as a hospital for Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War. A Herald and Torch Light newspaper article from 1874 states that roughly 40 of the wounded soldiers who died at the house were buried in the backyard.
