Main St. in downtown Westminster -- probably the most important building in the heart of the Carroll County seat other than the county library.Mather's small department store was the anchor of a business district that, like so many small-town downtowns, has been fighting for a decade to stay above water as merchants migrate to the mall and other locations along the commuter strips. A vacant storefront at this prominent location amounts to blight.
