Heritage Books was founded in 1976 by Laird and Marlene Towle, It was incorporated in 1977 in Maryland. It started as a family business employing two daughters and one son in the early years. It has moved and grown over the years; starting in the den, adding the converted garage, then into a small business park, ending up with three adjoining units. In 2002, Laird and Marlene retired and sold the business to Craig R. Scott of Willow Bend Books. Shortly after the sale Heritage Books moved to Westminster, Maryland. At that time we started going 'green' with more and more of the employees telecommuting.
