Visitors got a chance to see what Hagerstown looked like then, now, and a glimpse into its future through displays. There was entertainment by the public square and also on South Potomac Street. The morning kicked off with music and also recognizing some of the city and county's former and present leaders.
"Being 250 years we've come a long way since Jonathan Hager first layed the plot for the city of Hagerstown," says Mayor Robert Bruchey of Hagerstown. "We've got a long way to go. All we got to do is keep pushing forward and find those answers to make Hagerstown be the place people wanna be."
There was also freebies for the first 250 people at different locations such as Krumpe's Donuts, keychains, coins, and balloons.
