Bachman Valley, Maryland One Place Study

This profile is part of the Bachman Valley, Maryland One Place Study.


This area was originally on the line between Frederick and Baltimore Counties. Now it is in Carroll County. Its largest town is Manchester. Melrose is nearby. The nearest newspaper was in Manchester.

A referendum in October 1833 referendum sought public support for the creation of Carroll County out of pieces of Frederick and Baltimore counties.

The town of Dug Hill, now known as Manchester, was (for tax reasons) opposed to formation of a new county. (Did you know Manchester was nicknamed Noodle Doosey because the German immigrants hung noodles to dry on their front porches?)

After the election, infuriated residents in Manchester dragged a cannon up to the top of Dug Hill and repeatedly fired on Westminster.
