Hagerstown history:

Hagerstown, Maryland, was founded in 1762 by a German settler by the name of Jonathan Hager. He named his first home here Hager's Fancy when he arrived in 1739. He then named the town, Elizabeth-Town, after his wife at the time of the founding in 1762, but people continued to call it Hagers Town after him. So eventually, in 1813, the town was officially named Hagerstown.

Due to the city's location in the Tri-state area of western Maryland, South-central Pennsylvania and the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, it acts as a hub for both commercial and industrial businesses. There are several highways, railroads and other transits that all cross in Hagerstown. For this reason Hagerstown is often called the Hub City.

The Flying Boxcar

The importance of the company to the city and the country as a whole earned Hagerstown its former nickname "Home of the Flying Boxcar. See historical events for the 2008 final return of the flying boxcar to Hagerstown.
