GARRETT COUNTY

Records

There is fortunately little to be said about the records of Garrett County. Both man and
nature have been kind. There have been no wars or rumors of wars in Western Maryland
since this county was created. Neither has there been fire nor flood. Finally, the clear un-
polluted mountain air is by far safer for records than any air-conditioning system yet devised
by man. The searcher is fortunate to find full sets of records in every record-keeping agency.

Note

In Volume I, I stated that the contractor for the second courthouse was W. A. Liller. The
weight of the evidence was for "W. A." and not "W. H." Liller, but there was a difference of
opinion. Since that time we have found in the office of the Clerk of Court the Record of Pro-
ceedings, Minutes of Meetings, Accounts of Commission, Miscellaneous Records of Court
House Commission. There the name is clearly given as Wm. A. Liller. We also learned that
the exact day the Courthouse Commission turned the building over to the County Commis-
sioners was December 7, 1908 and that the architect J. Riley Gordon was a member of the
New York City firm of Gordon, Tracy and Swartaut.
