1. Goldsborough Stable Marker
Inscription.  Charles Goldsborough, governor of Maryland in 1818, lived in a manor house across Shoal Creek. The house was demolished in the early 1970s and this rare brick stable building is all that remains of the plantation. It was moved here in 1987 and restored to its 1790 appearance. Here the plantation horses, saddles, and harnesses were kept. Displayed inside are horse-drawn vehicles and tools associated with the blacksmith, harness-making, wheelwright and wagon-building trades.
