Westminster, MD - The Historical Society of Carroll County is pleased to announce that The Forgotten Corner: A History of Oakland Mill by Diana Scott - one of its best-selling titles - is now available again.

The book has been out of print for several years but now, thanks to a generous donation by Diana and her husband, Charles, the book is being updated and re-printed.

Based on years of research, the book tells the fascinating story of a Carroll County community lost to the waters of Liberty Reservoir. From early settlement to the growth of a textile mill on the bank of the Patapsco River, it examines the lives of those who worked in and around the Oakland Manufacturing Company.

Oral histories with some of the last residents offer a moving account of life in the town and the experience of watching their community disappear. The new edition includes information not found in the original.

The book will be after available November 11 in the Shop at Cockey’s. The price is $22.00 plus tax. Historical Society members receive a 10% discount. The Shop is located at 216 East Main Street in Westminster. The Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Mrs. Scott presented an illustrated lecture on the history of Oakland Mill at the Historical Society’s Box Lunch Talk on November 11, 2015 at Grace Hall, Grace Lutheran Church, Carroll Street, Westminster.

The Box Lunch Talks begin at noon and last about an hour. Bring your lunch – the Society provides beverages and desserts. Admission is $3.00 for Society members and $7.00 for non-members. Books will be available for purchase.
