This home is on the Maryland Historic Register, CH-218, in the old Town of Newport. Deer frolic in the evening in the adjoining open fields near a historic tobacco barn that contains an original tobacco press. The tobacco press was used to package tobacco in round kegs for ease of transportation to ships bound for England.

The Gilbert Run Canal is within walking distance and is available as a kayak launch to the Wicomico River.

This home is located in a rural setting, yet close to work and shopping. The large trees and stream open to a spacious home with tall ceilings, loaded with historic charm and restored with modern conveniences. The property has plenty of open space and room for gardens, chickens, horses, goats, or sheep. This is a small historic neighborhood with minimal traffic and a pleasant location for bike riding or walking.

Upon request I can forward an article written by Rick Smith, a Docent with the Mary Surratt house in Clinton, Maryland. He approached me one day before writing this article and asked about the Old Store that was on the property. Rick Smith believes that our Old Store was the location of the old Adams Tavern that is identified in the article as a place where John Wilkes Booth and Davey Herold stayed in a pine thicket near the tavern on their escape route.
