History

In the 19th century, West Friendship was frequented by travelers who found comfort in mile houses along the main road through West Friendship.  Many traveled over the Frederick Turnpike which was built in the 1790s.  Later in the 20th century, the paving of the West Friendship-Sykesville Road (now Route 32) in 1910, was an important development for the community.  Farming was very common in the 1940’s and was the center point for family and social gatherings.
