It has been a great week for the Garrett County Fair. There is something about BBQ chicken, home made lemonade, and funnel cake that makes you feel good inside. Last night Brody and I enjoyed an evening at the Garrett County Fair with family and friends. We started out on the Gator for Chase and Ady and then moved onto the games. After they suckered me out of more money than I wanted to spend, we moved on to the food. I picked up some BBQ Chicken from the Lions Club (awesome!!) and Brody loved the roll, Chad grabed a turkey leg from Archie’s (our favorite) and Laurel grabbed some french fries from the Rotrary. Chad, Chase, and I hit the Ferris wheel, what a view from the top! I hope everyone gets their fill of the fair, Saturday is the last day!
We are sad to let our fans know that Helmuth (Ace) Heise, founder of Wisp Resort, has passed. He and his wife, Eveyln, bought Will O’ Wisp hotel and restaurant in 1952. Then in 1953, they built a 10 unit motel. In 1955 they established Marsh Mountain Ski Area, which changed its name to Wisp in 1957. In 2001, Heise sold his financial interested in the Wisp Resort.
We will honor his memory, and express our greatest sympathies towards the family.

An unusual aspect of the Hen House is its poultry name, but quality seafood reputation. While chicken was the featured item during the 1960´s, the Warn brothers expanded the menu to include fresh seafood. The Hen House, with seating for over 400, is now the largest seafood restaurant west of Frederick.
Live crabs are delivered daily; fish, scallops, shrimp, clams, lobster, crab legs, and soft shell crabs are offered for seafood lovers. A large charcoal pit provides for tasty barbecue ribs. Even steak lovers are not neglected as their favorites are cooked to order. And yes, fried chicken is still on the menu.
