How has the labor force changed in Maryland throughout the years? We’re bringing a new Smithsonian traveling exhibition, The Way We Worked, to five communities in Maryland this year and companion exhibitions will uncover the unique history of work in our state. Allegany Museum Board member Dr. Nayano Taylor-Neumann tells us about the history of work in Allegany County, the first stop on the tour.
