Towns of Garrett County- Mountain Lake Park, Maryland

Located 8 miles south of Deep Creek Lake lies Mountain Lake Park, Maryland. Similar to other neighboring towns, Mountain Lake Park was a popular resort area from the late 1800’s to the 1940’s. A “Chautauqua” style town, Mountain Lake Park stressed the importance of education as well as recreation. Over the years, thousands of visitors have traveled through Mountain Lake Park, such as President William Howard Taft and Mark Twain.

Today, the town is filled with Victorian style homes representing the times gone by and over 2,000 residents. It is still a source of recreation, since it neighbors Broadford Lake.

Best-selling author Martha Grimes was the guest of honor at a special program presented by the Mayor and Town Council of Mountain Lake Park Saturday afternoon. In front of a standing-room-only crowd in the town hall, Grimes spoke about the characters and locations in her four-book series that center on the town, and more specifically on the Mountain Lake Park Hotel during its heyday years of operation. The main character in those books is 12-year-old Emma Brown, whose mother was a co-owner of the hotel, as was the case with Grimes’ mother in real life. “Emma is indeed autobiographical; however, she represents not the person I was, but the person I would have liked to have been at that age,” Grimes said. Grimes is best known internationally for her 22-novel Richard Jury mystery series, one book of which garnered her the coveted Nero Wolfe Award for Best Mystery of the Year. The Mayor and Town Council presented to her an original painting of the Mountain Lake Park Hotel, partially visible in the photo above, and also unveiled a permanent historical plaque featuring her and her books that will be placed on an exhibit stand in front of the town hall facing the former MLP Hotel property. Holding the plaque in the photo above are town council member Don Sincell and Mayor Leo Martin (far right). Also in the photo with Ms. Grimes is Kathryn Sincell-Corwell, far left, who coordinated the Martha Grimes Day event and also arranged for the painting of the hotel. Following the program, Grimes signed copies of her books for scores of interested readers. A resident of the Washington, D.C., area, Grimes was accompanied by her son Kent, daughter-in-law Travis, and two grandsons. Photo by John McEwen.

World renowned author Martha Grimes, who spent many of her younger years in Mountain Lake Park, will be the guest of honor at a special program and book signing on Saturday, June 18, 2 to 4 p.m. at Mountain Lake Park Town Hall.

Grimes, who is perhaps best known as the author of the Richard Jury mystery series (22 books to date), also authored a four-book series based on her early years spent at the Mountain Lake Park Hotel, which was owned and operated by her mother.

The lead character in her four books that are set in the Park and the Oakland area is 12-year-old Emma Graham, who actually represents Martha herself at that age.

“Hotel Paradise [the title of the first book], is the story of my 12-year-old life,” said Grimes, who is a native of Pittsburgh, but spent her summers at the hotel.

The three subsequent books in the mystery series are titled Cold Flat Junction, Belle Ruin, and her most recent release, Fadeaway Girl, which includes Emma’s employment as a cub reporter for the local newspaper The Conservative, representing The Republican.

Mar. 10, 2011

The mayor and town council of Mountain Lake Park unanimously adopted a Community Bill of Rights that “removes legal powers from gas extraction corporations within the town.”
Ordinance No. 2011-01, titled Mountain Lake Park’s Community Protection from Natural Gas Extraction Ordinance, was introduced to the council by Mayor Leo Martin. The first reading of the measure was held Jan. 6, followed by a public hearing on Feb. 3, and the ordinance was adopted at last Thursday’s regular March meeting.

At the heart of the ordinance is a statement of law: “It shall be unlawful for any corporation to engage in the extraction of natural gas within the Town of Mountain Lake Park, with the exception of gas wells installed and operating at the time of enactment of this ordinance.”

The bill also recognizes the right of the people to “a form of governance where they live which recognizes that all power is inherent in the people, that all free governments are founded on the people’s authority and consent, and that corporate entities and their directors and managers shall not enjoy special privileges or powers under the law which make community majorities subordinate to them.”

“Our town government is responsible for the health, safety, and rights of our citizens,” stated Mayor Martin. “When the county, state, and federal governments fail in their duties, it is our duty to take action.”
