Inscription. Abolition of slavery after the Civil War brought change to labor practices and subdivision of tobacco plantations, such as 108-acre “Collington Meadows”. R.C. Duval built a general store and post office ca. 1877 on part of the former plantation. It served Hall Station, a crossroads community that developed with the 1873 completion of the Popes Creek branch of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad. The railroad provided access to markets, education and entertainment in Baltimore and Washington.
