“The Plan” for the Saylor House

Hagerstown City Council Approves MOU
Last week the Mayor and City Council of Hagerstown voted to approve a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with members of the Washington County Historical Trust (WCHT) and the Antietam-Conococheague Watershed Alliance (ACWA). The memorandum sets forth the method by which these two organizations will accurately restore the Saylor House in Kiwanis Park and create a center for nature and history. The WCHT and ACWA will jointly establish their headquarters in the building, hosting educational and recreational programs, and opening the facility to other groups.
