In 2017, Allegany Museum was honored to receive Harry I. Stegmaier Jr’s B & O Railroad collection.
Mr. Stegmaier was a local historian, and perhaps best known for the invaluable book, ‘Allegany County-a History’ of which he was one of the four authors.
He had a great interest in our area, and in railroad history. He authored the Baltimore & Ohio Passenger Service, 1945-1971, in two 2 volumes.
You may view some of his collection of china from B & O dining cars on the second floor of the Museum, at 3 Pershing St Cumberland MD.
The Museum is currently closed until mid-March, when it will reopen with hours of 10-4 Tuesdays to Saturdays, and 1-4 on Sundays.
Admission is free, but donations are always gratefully accepted. A $3 donation per adult is suggested.
