Serving the great Allegany region and nestled in a range of ridges and valleys, secluded from the rest of Maryland, is the Allegany Museum. The Museum aims to collect material culture of the people, past and present, of the Allegany region. Housed in a 1932 Art Deco building originally constructed as a Federal Court House and Post Office, the museum showcases the history of Allegany County and Western Maryland. Exhibitions rotate and the ballroom is available for rental.
