Historical Info and Photos


Kitzmiller, Maryland is located on the border between Garrett County, Maryland, and Mineral County, West Virginia. Garrett County, originally part of Allegany County, was settled in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by German immigrants as competition for tobacco and farm land grew in the Chesapeake-Tidewater region and new land was needed. The earliest families settled primarily in the county’s north-central area, due to the good farmland found there amidst the area’s mountainous terrain. In 1797 Thomas Wilson II, son of a Scottish immigrant to the United States, moved to what is now Kitzmiller with his family and later settled in Altamont, located approximately ten miles from Kitzmiller. In 1801, his son Thomas Wilson III and bride Susan Bowman purchased a house from Frank Heck. Wilson opened a gristmill in Kitzmiller the next year, and later opened a sawmill. He had several children, including a daughter, Emily Wilson, who married Ebenezer Kitzmiller. During the early 19th century the Bray family also settled in Kitzmiller, joining the Wilson’s as the first settlers in the Kitzmiller neighborhood.  The Rafter, Hamill, Harvey, Paugh, and Pew families followed them.
