At both Gordon-Roberts History House in Cumberland, and the Cresap Museum in Oldtown, there is fabric called "Ingrain Carpeting" that was woven, possibly locally, in late 1700-early 1800's. It is, as I recall, about 30" wide and about 16 feet long. It is red, blue, and a teal-green that may once have been blue, with large pattern in a square as wide as the 30"width. The lady in Oldtown thought that her father had bought the peice that is there at a Kellerman Estate sale, but later was not sure that that is where it came from. Some of us in the area who are interested in antique textiles would love to know more about where it was made, and where in Cumberland it was before it ended up in two places. BTW , I'm in Frostburg, and would be happy to talk more with you about it if you contact me off list.
