Washington Street to close for Derby
The Ray Miller Memorial Scholastic Soap Box Derby is scheduled for May 25 on Washington Street in Shepherdstown.
Washington Street will be closed from Church Street to Princess Street from about 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on that day.
In previous years, the race has been held on German Street. Local business owners had commented that when the race was held on main street, it essentially shut down the entire business district during a crucial time for tourists and townspeople.
