  1. Deer Park Cemetery Walking Tour - Join the Historical Society of Carroll County on Saturday, September 18 for a walking tour of one of Carroll County’s historic cemeteries: Deer Park Methodist Cemetery in Smallwood. The tour will be led by church historian and HSCC volunteer Steve Sinnott. Deer Park Chapel was incorporated in 1854 and soon afterward the area to the rear of the church was used for burials. Over 200 eight-grave burial lots were sold originally. Originally, each owner maintained their own plot—digging the graves and caring for the site. The cemetery has expanded several times over the years and is the final resting place for over 1,500 local residents. Among these are 150 veterans, including the first casualty of the Spanish-American War. Their stories are sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, and they make a fascinating introduction to local history you probably never knew. The tour is suitable for ages 10 and up. The tour requires standing for up to 1 hour and walking on uneven ground as well as paved roadways. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. The cemetery is located at 2200 Sykesville Road, behind the old Deer Park Methodist Church (now The Maryland Store). The tour begins at 10:00 a.m. Please arrive at the cemetery gate 15 minutes before the tour for check-in.
  1. Michaels Sunday Makebreak: FREE Kids Worry Dolls - Come in-store for another FREE fun event! Worry dolls are small handcrafted dolls that originated in Guatemala. Legend says that people can tell the dolls their worries, then place them under their pillows; come morning, the dolls will have given them the wisdom to do away with their worries
