Grantsville is situated in the northern section of Maryland near the state’s border with Pennsylvania. While the town is somewhat small, it is packed with history. Grantsville was once an Amish settlement and eventually grew to hold part of the National Road. Because of this, many pioneers with their stagecoaches would travel through the town. To help with the growing population, Grantsville built many inns and stores. Today, visitors can explore the town to view these historic structures, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, and experience its rich Amish and Swiss-German heritage. The following are just a couple of things to do during your vacation stay in the area.
Spruce Forest Artisan Village. Located in the Allegheny region and features many buildings from the 1800s. The village once held the homes of Amish, Mennonites, Native Americans, and other settlers who all worked together to help develop the surrounding farmland. Today, the village now showcases local art and has six resident artists who create stained glass, paintings, pottery, and handcrafted soap.
New Germany State Park, Grantsville, Maryland. New Germany State Park spans over 483 acres and rests next to the Savage River State Forest. The land was originally used as a power source, thanks to its massive lake, which provided energy to local sawmills. Eventually, the Civilian Conservation Corps bought the forest and redeveloped the area in the late 1930s by planting numerous trees, building cottages, and creating a ski resort.
Casselman River Bridge State Park. This four-acre state park is best known for its 80-foot bridge, called the Casselman Bridge, which was built in 1813 as part of the National Road. This stone bridge crosses the Casselman River and now serves as a pedestrian walkway. In addition to this historic structure, Casselman River Bridge State Park is a sought-after spot in the town for fly-fishing, wildlife photography, and hiking.
