Boonsboro Free Library, 1976 (19 North Main Street)

Boonsboro Free Library, 19 North Main Street Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


The transferred deed of the Bank of Boonsboro on North Main Street stated that the site "shall not be occupied by or for any financial or money lending institution ..." To date, this branch of Washington County Free Library has kept that promise: staff does lend all types of library resources but no money.

Renovated in the spring of 1974, the converted bank still welcomes withdrawals and depositors. New accounts are encouraged. The spacious office where the bank president once pondered the monetary morass is now a quiet study room.


Maryland Library Association.

The photograph and description were published in an article called "Found Space" in the October 1976, Crab, the publication of the Maryland Library Association, and are used with permission.

The Bank was built sometime around 1905, and enlarged in 1925 to include the Colonial Revial style of the facade. (From the Maryland Historical Trust, 1999.)
