Main Street

History Research |
Town History | House Histories

Main Street wasn’t formally named until after the Civil War, though it was usually referred to as “the main street” in earlier deeds. It was apparently laid out along a branch of the old Waggon Road from Philadelphia to Georgia (the other branch passing through Williamsport). In town it runs from Memorial Hill on the east to the road west out of town to Swearingen’s Ferry, across the Potomac to Shepherdstown, now in West Virginia. The old waggon road may have originally turned southwest to reach Packhorse Ford, a mile downstream of the ferry site.
