Then and Now

In 1986 the Berryville Chamber of Commerce moved its office into the town's historic Old Pump House south of town at 506 South Main St. The 1916 Keystone pump inside the pump house brought water up from the 600-foot well. It continued in use until it became contaminated in 1930. Nearby Kraft Foods continued to use the well for cleanup until 1950. The old pump was removed in 2013 and the office was remodeled after a fire gutted the building. The Old Pump House continues to welcome visitors to Berryville and also serves as the office for the RV park in back. (David Bell/Carroll County News)
