On Thursday, Jan. 19 at 9 a.m. the commissioners held a ceremony to rededicate the Freedom Shrine. The ceremony was held to "Celebrate America" in honor of Carroll County's 175th birthday.
The Freedom Shrine was originally dedicated in 1999 and it houses replicas of some of the nation's most significant historical documents. According to a county news release, the purpose of the Freedom Shrine is to give everyone the opportunity to see and read for themselves the words and actions that marked momentous turning points in our great nation.
