Historic John Poole House, Poolesville, Maryland

 

Residents of Poolesville, in Montgomery County, Maryland love the small town atmosphere of the community which is unique in the busy urban suburbs of Washington, DC.  Visitors to Poolesville also discover some interesting American history.

The John Poole House and General Store is the oldest structure in the community and original one room log cabin dates back to 1793.  It served as a home, general store and trading post.  The structure was enlarged several times and also served as the first post office, from 1810, in the community.

The John Poole house is located at 19923 Fisher Avenue, Poolesville, MD 20837 and now serves as an interpretive museum and gift show.  The room behind the merchandise store houses a display of Civil War Artifacts.

Dolores and I visited Poolesville during the 15th Annual Montgomery County Heritage Days weekend, presented by Heritage Montgomery.  The annual Heritage Days weekend is designed to develop tourism while protecting and promoting the cultural, historical and natural resources of Montgomery County.

Really great photos Roy.  I've been living in Montgomery County all my life and have known of Poolesville - but never knew there was an actual Poole that it was named after.  I just remembered that years ago it was the favorite place for police officers to buy a house to live in.
