Evergreen Mansion & Museum

Join us at the Evergreen Heritage Center, a private family mansion turned historic museum and farm in Mount Savage, for a guided tour and step back in time. 
 
Settled by a Revolutionary War lieutenant as payment for his military service, the property expanded from a modest homestead and farm in the late 1780s to a large plantation in the 18th century when Winfield Scott Trimble planted 13 varieties of evergreen trees and deemed the property, Evergreen. 
 
Today, Evergreen is recognized by the Maryland Historical Trust (1976) and listed on the National Register of Historic Places (2015). Visitors may tour the Evergreen Mansion and the Evergreen Barn, the last remaining 18th century barn in Western Maryland, with its original stone foundation, hand-hewn chestnut beams, and plantation-era farming implements. Visitors may also hike the Evergreen Coal Trail, which was used to haul coal mined on the property in the early 1900s.
 
The Evergreen Heritage Center is located on 130 acres adjacent to the Great Allegheny Passage and the Western Maryland Scenic Railway, approximately 1.5 miles outside of Mount Savage, 10 minutes from Frostburg and 15 minutes from Cumberland. 
 
Private tours are available by request only by calling 301-687-0664 or emailing foundation@evergreenheritagecenter.org. More information about Evergreen can be found at www.evergreenheritagecenter.org
