Inscription.  Piers were in existence here as early as 1846. Later three long piers were built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railway for commercial use. Iron ore, grain, lumber, sand, crushed stone and packaged freight were shipped from this point. The B&O Railway also had a roundhouse here. Ferry boats and barges wintered at these piers. The piers were last used in 1973.
