H&FRHS Awarded NRHS Grant

The National Railway Historical Society (NRHS) has awarded a Heritage Grant to the Hagerstown & Frederick Railway Historical Society. The $2300 grant will allow the Society to purchase computer hardware and software for cataloging its collection of documents, photos, and artifacts for preservation. The NRHS Heritage Grant will allow us to digitize our collection and make it accessible online. The grant also allows for purchase of technology for documenting the oral histories of people who rode on or remember the trolleys. The Society’s target date for completion of the project is the end of 2021, with an absolute deadline of June 8, 2022. The oral history gathering will be an ongoing project.
