I am currently enrolled at school in Frostburg State University.
The college is one of the towns main source of income, it is a low income town.
Frostburg is a great small town in the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland. We have a great selection of foods to choose from. There are many family owned businesses on Main Street that gives the town a very friendly atmosphere. We are a close knit community.
