Hagerstown is a growing community in northwestern Maryland, not far from the PA and WV borders. It is located on the old National Highway, US 40, and very near Interstates 68 and 81. The town is important because of its strategic location and the roads and railroads that go through it (its nickname is the "Hub City"). Now it is more rural and does attract some tourists. The population was just over 40,000 in 2013. Photos courtesy of Wikipedia: downtown by Vpuliva and Burnsides Bridge (site of important Civil War battle) by Jim Strongin.
