See how we worked, played and were educated in the late 1800’s through the 1900’s.
Collections document Frostburg’s rich history through displays of household items, toys, tools and farming implements, military memorabilia, a replica of a working coal mine, and instruments from Frostburg’s Arion Band (est.1877), considered the oldest community band in the United States.
The Frostburg Museum also has a vast collection of photographs and other genealogical records.
Rounding out the Museum’s collections is the outdoor kiosk containing the Braddock Stone, a carved highway marker dating to the mid-1800’s which figures prominently in the area’s ties to the Braddock Trail.
