  4. The congregation of the Moravian Church at Graceham, Frederick County, Md., was organized by Bishop Matthew Hehl on the eighth of October, 1758. Therefore, by special services, held from Wednesday, October 7, to Sunday, October 11, 1908, the congregation celebrated its Sesqui-centennial Anniversary, for which the writer prepared an historical account, compiled from the first Church Register, the Diaries, etc., in the Graceham archives, on which the historical portion of the following sketch is based. Modern Graceham and the Vicinity. In the northern part of Frederick County, Maryland, fifty-seven miles west of Baltimore, on the line of the Western Maryland Railroad which, in 1867, desiring to extend its line to Hagerstown, was granted the right of way through land owned by the Moravian Church lies the pleasantly situated village of Graceham. The main street of the village ascends the gradual slope of a hill rising from the Moravian church and parsonage at its foot, which the geodetic survey has marked as being 449 feet above sea-level, until at its crest near the upper end of the street, about one-fifth of a mile towards the west, it reaches an elevation of 490 feet. Shade-trees on both sides of the street, and fruit trees in the gardens and orchards in the rear of the houses some of the latter having been built, in part, during the early years of its history and the absence of the toil and turmoil incident to towns in which factories or other great business enterprises are located, give to Graceham an air of peaceful repose, which seems in keeping with its early character as a Moravian church settlement.
  5. The historic, Federal styled town of New Market was founded in 1793 by two gentlemen of the area, Nicholas Hall and William Plummer. On June 1, 1793 the Town officially began when Nicholas Hall sold the first lots, thereby setting into motion the plan to establish a town beside the rough wagon trail, known as the Baltimore Turnpike. Plummer and Hall fully realized the commercial value of the turnpike and therefore made a half-mile section of the road New Market's Main Street. These astute men knew the Town's location, toll-free roadway and ample water supply would attract enterprising men and women to develop a place where travelers could rest, eat, shop, and trade. The Town of New Market grew quickly as men with foresight immediately built homes, churches, schools and set up businesses to meet the needs of travelers moving along the difficult trek to and from Baltimore and beyond. As early as 1797, the Town had a number of two-story log and brick homes. The Bush Creek Society of Friends established New Market's first religious institution and school. In 1799, John Roberts built the town's first hotel. New Market soon became an important center for wagoners and other travelers. By 1812, the town had a button factory, nail factory, wheelwright shops, blacksmith shops, tanneries, dry gods, grocery stores, inns, taverns, livery stables, wagon stands, distilleries, and a "House of Entertainment for the Genteel." In 1818, the Baltimore Turnpike became the eastern section of the National Turnpike, one of the most famous and well-traveled highways in America. The Town of New Market became an integral part of the western trade route and the multitudes who opened America's new frontiers passed through the center of town. The first stagecoaches carrying mail traveled Main Street. Over the road came heavy freight and Conestoga wagons loaded with grain, whiskey, tobacco, lumber, iron, furs, and other products. Passenger coaches and fancy buggies stopped at the hotels, inns, and taverns. Herds of cattle, sheep, and pigs were driven through to market. Peddlers came with carts and many traveled on foot carrying all they owned on their backs. New Market remained an important stop for travelers until the mid-nineteenth century. When the railroad reached West Virginia and beyond, the traffic through New Market slowly declined until the the advent of the automobile in the 1890's. An act to incorporate the Town of New Market was passed by the Maryland Legislature and signed by the governor on March 28, 1878 In the same year, Issac Russell was elected the Town's first Mayor. On December 6, 1975, the Town of New Market was placed on the National Register of Historical Places and under the supervision of the Department of the Interior.

  9. The publishing in 1906, of George Helman's 'Emmitsburg, MD' cumulated the first serious attempt to document the history of Emmitsburg and the life and time of its residents. However, without preexisting, in depth, detailed knowledge of the Emmitsburg area and its history, the valuable information contained within its pages, while interesting, is often difficult to understand. http://www.emmitsburg.net/history/ Welcome to the web site of the Emmitsburg Area Historical Society. Its purpose is to help us identify & capture the history of the people, organizations, businesses & events that have shaped our community. And to provide this information to those seeking to learn more about our rich history, or their own local ancestral roots. By now, ancestors of the original Emmitsburg inhabitants have spread far and wide so this website serves as a virtual meeting.
  10. The Middletown Valley Historical Society was founded in 1976 to preserve the rich historic and cultural background that shaped Middletown and the surrounding valley. The towns of Maryland's Middletown Valley bear the imprints of some of the most telling events in early American history: the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the building of America's first national road. Andrew Jackson, the nation's seventh president, described the Middletown Valley as "one of the most favored and delightful spots on earth" and we believe that, nearly 200 years later, this remains an apt description. The Middletown Valley Historical Society is headquartered in a home constructed on one of the town's original lots, laid out in 1767. The present home was constructed around 1850 using locally quarried stone. It is one of the only remaining stone-faced buildings in Middletown. http://mvhistoricalsociety.weebly.com/
