New Market, Maryland

New Market, Maryland

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.

More gleanings from the 1873 plat of New Market:

L. Barbour lived on the west end of town. Perhaps this was a relative of Achsah. This may be the house (door on left).

Henry Stier Dulaney also owned a house in New Market in 1873. I was unable to place it exactly on the block, but it seems likely that it was this or its neighbor.
