What Bert Has To Say About Hagerstown-Martinsburg Metro Area

Hagerstown lies at the gateway to the Western Maryland region and the Shenandoah Valley to the south. Historically, it was an important transportation center because of its location along major east-west and north-south routes and near a passage west through the Cumberland Gap. Today, Hagerstown is a pleasant mix of old and new with a notable downtown historic area and an unusually large concentration of pre–Civil War row homes not unlike nearby Baltimore’s famous row houses. There are some attractive new suburbs mostly northeast and some gritty working class areas close to the main city.
