History Buffs


The National Capital Trolley Museum in Colesville has great exhibits on DC streetcars. We even took a trolley ride!


After this rewarding stop, we were off to Oakley Cabin, which was constructed from logs in the 1820s to house enslaved people. The Oakley Cabin is now a living history site and museum.


In Rockville, The Historical Society includes a tour of the Beall-Dawson House and the Stonestreet Museum of 19th Century Medicine lasting 45 minutes to an hour.


We could have spent an entire day just on the Maryland Civil War Trails. There’s a scenic drive and trail markers that show the Lee Invades Maryland Trail. It begins with Robert E. Lee crossing the Potomac River into Maryland at White’s Ford. Stops along the route include Poolesville, Beallsville, Barnesville, Comus, Sugarloaf Mountain and the Monocacy Aqueduct. The trail then moves to sites in Frederick and on the Antietam Battlefield.
