Best Farm

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 3 February 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

Because of its proximity to the Georgetown Pike which was a main thoroughfare between Frederick, Maryland and Washington, D.C., portions of both the Union and Confederate armies camped at the Best Farm throughout the Civil War.

"There are moments when time stands still. You hope it will wait for you."

Nicely documented. Does it have a function now? From the light passing through the windows it gives the impression of being abandoned

@grouser: It is part of the Monocacy National Battlefield Park. One of many Civil War battlefields that are now national monuments.
