Buckeystown in Frederick County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Some years later, this photo circa 1900 shows a similar view. The white tannery buildings were torn down and the lot was sometimes used for grazing cattle. On the top of the hill, the original George Buckey home, owned by the Baker family at the time, has acquired its wrap-around porch. Down the hill from the two large trees on the west side of Buckeystown Pike is the John Buckey Tavern, a private residence since the 1850's. The duplex house is next door. The frame building next to the creek is the Dietrick & Gambrill
Erected 1995 by Buckeystown Preservation Society.
