HAGERSTOWN -- The renovation of the Washington County Courthouse Annex building is nearing completion, with less than 1 percent of the work left to be done, Washington County officials said last week. Separate construction projects to replace the roof and enhance security also are ending, with all work scheduled to be finished by early January 2009. When the work is done, it will mark the end of an eventful four years of construction at the courthouse marked by setbacks and changes that have delayed work and driven up the cost of the project.

HAGERSTOWN - Looking at the impressive volunteer fire company buildings in Hagerstown today, one would have a hard time believing that 200 years ago, a fire department tended to consist of a group of men with leather buckets full of water. But that was the case. On top of that, the buckets were provided to the firefighters by property owners and the water often was drawn from a series of underground cisterns around Hagerstown. There were no buildings, no shiny fire engines and in the early 1800s, there were few horses available to rush firefighters and their meager equipment to fires.
