Parsonsburg - Methodist Camp MeetingA typical camp meeting lasted 8-10 days, sometimes longer. In early camp meetings, families would pitch a tent on the grounds and attend preaching, Bible studies, and class meetings throughout the day, and sometimes long into the night. Later, "tents" were permanent wooden structures.
As the nineteenth century wore on, camp meetings gradually fell into disuse. After the Civil War, they enjoyed a resurgence. This photo shows the Parsonsburg Camp Meeting in that time period.

Berlin - Trappe MillTruitt and les Callette called the Trappe Mill site the oldest in the county, successor of Powell’s Mill mentioned in the 1698 will of Walter Powell, then a resident of Somerset County. Powell left to his daughters Elizabeth and Mary Evans “Powell’s Mill Pond,” 250 acres and the tract “Hilliard’s Discovery on the seaboard side.” The authors of WCMA, p. 288, believed that Powells Mill developed into Trappe Mill. The village of Buckingham was in the upper seaside region at a gristmill on Trappe Creek. After the main highway bypassed the location, the settlement declined and was superseded by the village near Burley Inn (i. e. Berlin); the old mill continued as the Trappe Mill.Apr 03, 2024
