Allegany County's historical significance covers a broad range of topics and years. Established in 1789, the county rapidly developed in the 19th century due to transportation advantages, industrialization, natural resources, and the entrepreneurial spirit of its citizens. Allegany County's economy continued to expand in the 20th century, as additional industries made western Maryland their home. Industrial growth created towns and commercial opportunities that have shaped the county's character for more than two centuries.
