See Washington County in the Movies! A new WWII Era film from the WCHS will be shown Sunday, November 10th. Click here for more details.

Using actual footage collected from local residents, the Historical Society has produced a movie-length film depicting life in Washington County during the post-war years of the 1940s and 1950s. Relive the lives of the residents of Washington County during and after World War II, as the soldiers return home and families blossom and reorient their activities to civilian and domestic life. Viewers might recognize old friends and neighbors as they celebrate holidays, engage in school activities, participate in parades, enjoy leisure time, shop, and earn a living. The film features seventy-year-old scenes of Hagerstown, Clear Spring, Funkstown, Williamsport, Keedysville and more. Please join us for a nostalgic stroll down Memory Lane! Tickets: $10/person. Available online by clicking here or at the Maryland Theatre Box Office, 301-790-2000.
