Planning Continues for Garrett County’s Sesquicentennial Celebration

Last Updated on Oct 27, 2021 at 1:10pm | Communications Office
Led by the Garrett County Government, this sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, commemorates the incorporation of Garrett County on December 4, 1872.

The committee is organizing events, commemorative coin souvenirs, and community participation opportunities based on the theme of the event: “Garrett County: Celebrating 150 Years of Connecting Communities”. Also, the planning group is coordinating a large public celebration event for September 2022.

On Monday, December 6, 2021 (immediately following the public meeting), a kick-off celebration will be held at the Garrett County Courthouse. This launch event will be a preview of the upcoming year-long plans with light refreshments to be served.

“We’re proud of our county and the bright future we have in front of us,” said Paul Edwards, Chair of the Board of Garrett County Commissioners. “This initiative is county-wide and will involve our towns, communities, and citizen groups and highlight our rich local history.”

A complete schedule of events and additional information will be updated weekly on
