HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Washington County Board of Commissioners has awarded a $232,000 contract to build a
transportation museum.

The board voted 3-0 on Tuesday to award the construction contract to JCS Communications Inc. of Frederick. One commissioner was absent and one abstained.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown reports that the new museum will be built at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center south of Hagerstown. It will be a 7,200-square-foot, closed-in pole barn.

The museum will house exhibits like wagons, sleighs, buggies and antique cars.

The building is also receiving a $175,000 state grant.
