Heritage Books was founded in 1976 by Laird and Marlene Towle, It was integrated in 1977 in Maryland. It began as a household service utilizing two daughters and one child in the early years. It has actually moved and grown over the years; starting in the den, adding the converted garage, then into a small business park, ending up with three adjacent units. In 2002, Laird and Marlene retired and offered the business to Craig R. Scott of Willow Bend Books. Shortly after the sale Heritage Books moved to Westminster, Maryland. At that time we began going ‘green’ with a growing number of the employees telecommuting.
