Actually enjoying getting my Masters Degree here because of the friendly, caring staff and student body. Once named Western Maryland College, it's name change identifies it more as a private liberal arts college that should be visited, just for it's scenic beauty.
From 1904 to 1938, the Sykesville Colored Schoolhouse, a one-room schoolhouse about a quarter mile from Main Street, was where all the African-American children of the area were taught, from kindergarten up. Scheduled for demolition a number of times after it had been abandoned, the schoolhouse was finally saved in the 90s. Restored to its original furnished appearance, the building has been converted into a museum and also houses an afternoon homework club.
