   Allegany County Data

 Brief History:

 The western part of Maryland (including the present Allegany County) was originally part of Prince George's County when
 Maryland was formed in 1696. This county included six current counties, and by repeated splitting, new ones were generated:
 Frederick from Prince George's in 1748; and Montgomery and Washington from Frederick in 1776.

 Allegany County was formed in 1789 by the splitting of Washington County. At the time it was the westernmost county in
 Maryland, but a split in 1872 produced Garrett County, the current westernmost county.
