Allegany County Sheriff’s Office Turns 225 Monday

April 24th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

There's going to be an anniversary celebrated Monday locally, and it's gone a little under the radar. The Allegany County Sheriff's Department came into existence on April 25th, 1791. With no courthouse, the first sheriff, John Beatty, was sworn into office at the home of John Graham, in Cumberland.

Beatty was only 27 when sworn.
