Carroll Magazine Union Bridge: The Little Town That Could Apr 1, 2005 Written By Leslie Eckard



Ms. Leslie Eckard just called to my attention an article she had written on Union Bridge for Carroll Magazine in 2005.

I have just filed a story on Union Bridge and the Western Maryland Railway – and the railway museum in Union Bridge. I had dinner at the “Original Pizza” and posted some pictures on Facebook…


Posted By CM on Apr 1, 2005

Written By Leslie Eckard


Highlights:

Community spirit and innovation run like parallel train tracks in Union Bridge. The area is a study in contrasts: a hard scrabble land of rock and swamp that inspires works of art; a town poised for a growth spurt while holding on fiercely to its heritage.

Located on the Piedmont Plateau in western Carroll County, Union Bridge has retained its population (approximately 1,000) and small-town feel for generations. With its one stoplight and absence of fast-food restaurants, coffee bars, and strip malls–it is a throwback to a simpler time…

[…]

Other improvements included the establishment of Little Pipe Creek Park, a wetlands preserve complete with a bicycle and walking trail…

[…]

Union Bridge has a long-standing tradition of community spirit. In 1820, early descendants of the original settler, William Farquhar, worked together to build a bridge that would span the swamp and join their lands together.

[…]

Between 1855 and 1862, with the coming of the Western Maryland Railroad, the population of the town exploded…

[…]

Another Union Bridge “import” and fan is Angelo Monteleone, whose restaurant, Original Pizza, is a must-see…

[…]

We enjoyed our food. The service was great. Our server was very friendly. There are plenty of tables which is good because a steady stream of customers visited while we were there.

“Original Pizza” is bright, clean, and well maintained. It has all manner of great Union Bridge history memorabilia, pictures, artifacts, and mementos. It is like eating at a museum cafeteria.

It sits across the intersection from the sculpture at the corner of North Main Street and East Broadway, which is a reproduction of “Love Reconciled with Death” by Union Bridge native William Henry Rinehart (1825-1874.)

Stop by and tell them Mayor Perry Jones’ Uncle Kevin sent you.

New exhibit at Walters Art Museum showcases the statues of Maryland artist William Rinehart - By Mary Carole McCauley The Baltimore Sun

New exhibit at Walters Art Museum showcases the statues of Maryland artist William Rinehart By Mary Carole McCauley The Baltimore Sun http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/arts/bs-ae-walters-rinehart-20150411-story.html#page=1


The abracadabra of sculpture's appeal

The master and a modern-day disciple

How many Rinehart sculptures can you find on a walk around town?

At a first look and even at a second, you'd swear it was magic.

Those three white towels, two folded neatly and the third rumpled and hanging every which way — surely they're made of terrycloth and purchased at a department store, not carved from white Carrara marble in a stone quarry by the 34-year-old Baltimore artist Sebastian Martorana.

Those two little boys curled up on a mattress, their heads barely heavy enough to dimple a pillow — surely they'll wake up any moment from their nap. But that nap, which was carved in stone by the master sculptor William Rinehart, has been going on undisturbed since 1869.

"Rinehart's Studio: Rough Stone to Living Marble," the new exhibition running at the Walters Art Museum, makes a strong case for the undiluted trickery that lies at the heart of sculpture's appeal.

Democratic Advocate, March 25, 1899: Francis J. Englar, a well-known farmer hurt during tree work

A serious accident occurred near Linwood last Saturday afternoon.

Mr. Francis J. Englar, a well-known farmer, was lopping a tree in his yard, and fearing it would damage the adjacent dwelling in falling, he tied a rope to the top and attempted to pull it in an opposite direction.

As it was falling Mr. Englar slipped and fell, while a heavy branch struck and pinned him to the earth.

He was held in that position until assistance arrived, when he was extricated while in an unconscious condition. Medical aid was quickly summoned from Union Bridge, and everything done to alleviate the sufferer. His oldest son was also severely bruised.

Union Bridge Pilot, August 19, 1921: Several miscreants overstepped the limits of practical jokes

Several miscreants overstepped the limits of practical jokes

Union Bridge Pilot, August 19, 1921.

Several miscreants, evidently unacquainted with the law, overstepped the limits of all practical jokes a few nights ago when beginning at the railroad the crossing gates were left down, continuing through town and carrying porch furniture and house flowers from porches and, in some cases, breaking them, and committing numerous other pranks.

It appears there is a dark cloud of suspicion resting over the heads of several of the perpetrators so that a repetition of these acts might result in bringing them face to face with the law.

Union Bridge Pilot, August 13, 1920: Four of our dusky daughters of Eve engaged in a loud discussion

Four of our dusky daughters of Eve engaged in a loud discussion

Union Bridge Pilot, August 13, 1920

By failing to be present at the proper time, we missed a "scoop" for our news columns on Monday evening when it is said four of our dusky daughters of Eve engaged in a loud discussion of their differences making use of much unprintable oratory, emphasizing their charges and counter charges with their fists.

A sudden rainfall acted as a quietus on the combatants and the contest apparently ended in a draw.

However the incident is not creditable to the participants, nor to the town authorities who permit altercations of this character to take place on the streets without an effort to punish the guilty parties.

Police still looking for lone gunman who robbed Union Bridge 7-11



Police still looking for lone gunman who robbed Union Bridge 7-11

Robber remains at large after taking cash

By Kevin Dayhoff

Posted 6/17/11

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information regarding the identity and location of a lone gunman who remains at large after robbing the 7-11 convenience store in Union Bridge late Tuesday morning.

According to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, around 2:20 a.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to a hold-up alarm in the 100-block of Main Street in Union Bridge.

Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, Major Phillip S. Kasten, reports the initial investigation has revealed that “a white male approximately 5’-10” tall wearing a black ‘hoodie,’ white mask, and black gloves entered the store displaying a handgun and demanded money from the cashier.”

No one was hurt in the robbery.

The suspect then fled from the store on foot after taking an undisclosed amount of cash.

The Sheriff’s Office investigation is continuing.  Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Corporal Doug Epperson at 410-386-2574, or the toll free anonymous TIPS Hotline at 1-888-399-TIPP (8477).




In addition to this convenience store robbery, "The police are investigating three separate robberies that occurred Friday and Saturday," according to Carroll Times reporter Alisha George...  http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/news/crime/police-inspecting-three-separate-robberies/article_02623390-9a29-11e0-8973-001cc4c03286.html
