I know its pretty rural out that way. What's the general feel of the area and the people. Straight to the point we are somewhat alternative type people. My wife and I are often to refered to as"hippies" I hate using the categorazation but may help you understand. We are looking for a good community, open minded people, artsy, organic etc???? Anything like this in that area?? We have family in eatern md and would like to be closer to them. Any info would be great, also we have a daughter so what are schools like?

organick - Using the dropdown menus, try an "advanced" search on the Maryland threads, keyword Frostburg. Several Frostburg links will come up that way. Frostburg is a nice place IMO, you may find what you're looking for.

Western Maryland is overall a rural and conservative area. Cumberland and Frostburg, the two biggest communities have an "arts" scene and people such as yourself. Frostburg, being a college town, is probably the community closest to what you describe. Neither of them are like Asheville or Burlington or anywhere like that though.

I don't know much about the public school system in the county as I went to Catholic school. Frostburg is served by Mt. Ridge High School, built in the last couple of years. Generally speaking, most people consider the public schools OK academically, but books take a back seat to footballs in both funding and popular interest.

No, middle school students in Frostburg take the bus to Mount Savage Middle School.
