NOTE: The information contained herein has been obtained from sources deemed reliable and is believed to be accurate. However, no express or implied warranty is made or may be inferred from any such representation. Dimensions, square footage and acreage contained herein are more or less. Prospective purchasers are encouraged to perform their own due diligence, in advance of the auction, regarding the permitted uses of the property.

The property is located in Northern Carroll County at the edge of the Village of Silver Run, a short distance north of the Union Mills Homestead. The tax record has the property within a Westminster zip code. The largely agricultural area is among the more historic areas in Carroll County, with history in the Silver Run area dating back to the 1700s. A 2006 article in Carroll Magazine frames Silver Run in this way, “In reality, the name fits the community perfectly. There is mystery, allegiance, beauty, and a sweet serenity to this historic northern Carroll County community.”

The property is situated on Littlestown Pike (MD-97), a significant commuter route between its namesake, Littlestown, PA, and Westminster. MD-97 changes names as it works south through Montgomery County to the edge of Washington, DC. The Westminster commercial district is about 7 miles south. Surrounding properties are a mix of residential homes, farms, retail and automotive businesses, and recreational facilities. The property is suitable for any number of storage oriented and small agricultural uses.
