    New Market traces its history back to the early horse and buggy days of the late 18th century. Founded in 1793 by Nicholas Hall and William Plummer: New Market's location along the historic National Pike, made it a convenient stop for travelers in need of food, lodging, and services. The high-wheeled, six horse, Conestoga wagons were frequent visitors on their way to the Ohio Country and beyond.

    The eight hotels and taverns lining Main Street provided travelers with a night's lodging for a Quarter and a glass of whiskey for a Nickel. Beyond the hotels were barns and pens for resting livestock being herded to Baltimore markets. Wheelwrights, blacksmith shops, a tannery as well as, button and shoe factories and wrought iron nail shop met the needs of travelers and the farming community.
    Jacob Stier's Property at Sugar Loaf Mountain: Littleworth
    Jacob Stier's Property at Sugar Loaf Mountain: Littleworth (60)
    a collection of documents, photos, news articles pertaining to the Stier land on the border of Frederick and Montgomery Counties, Maryland, at Sugar Loaf Mountain. The 1798 tax assessment for Frederick County shows Jacob Stier owning acreage in a tract known as Littleworth in Sugar Loaf and Linganore Hundred.

    Based on information contained in the Tracey land record collection at the Carroll County Historical Society in Westminster, Littleworth was very near Sugarloaf Mountain in southern Frederick County, very close to the Montgomery County line. The original patentees for Littleworth are listed as:

    Dec 3 1767 Littleworth 25 acres Balser Gachs, Liber BC&GS#40, folio 131

    Nov 20 1769 Anthony Hunter, Patent 25, Liber BC&GS#36, folio 135

    Sept 14 1771 Resurvey on Littleworth 374 acres, Zachariah White and Daniel Hunter, Certificate 374, Liber BC&GS#46, Folio 302.

    Jan 24 1774 Resurvey on Littleworth, Geo. Silver, Patent 374, Liber BC&GS#46, folio 302.

    Location of Littleworth is described as S.S. of a small branch, a draft of Rocky Branch.

    George Silver conveyed parts of the Littleworth tract to Jacob Stier and to Francis Deakins in November 1774.
