Hagerstown Apartments for Rent
When Jonathan Hager arrived to the colonies in 1736, he traveled west into the wilderness where Charles Calvert was offering inexpensive land to those willing to settle the untamed landscape of Western Maryland. He built a home with his surroundings in mind, wanting a thick-walled, sturdy structure that could withstand Indian attack. He completed his house in 1740, and he did an amazing job – the house still stands today, and the historic structure is a house museum.
Hagerstown, the county seat of Washington County, is a beautiful city marked by ridges of limestone, used by early settlers as building material because it was easily quarried. St. John’s Episcopal Church, completed in 1872, is an impressive example of this building material. History permeates throughout the city and is marked by historic homes, districts, and museums. Even the City Farmers Market is historic, operating since 1783, making it one of the oldest farmers’ markets in the country.
Rent a Hagerstown apartment and you’ll be charmed by this elegant city. Go shopping downtown and wander through shops housed in historic buildings, dine at fine restaurants or sidewalk cafes, and visit beautiful parks, such as South Mountain State Park. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail can be picked up here for a short hike or a long, multi-night hiking and camping trip.
