New Lisbon: Servicing Travelers on the National Road:
"New Lisbon" was established by Quaker Caleb Pancoast in 1802, who saw both need and opportunity to service travelers along the length of the National Pike. He also welcomes all religious denominations into his home, and allowed it to be used as a meetinghouse.
Shorted to "Lisbon" in 1805, the town thrived, and by 1835, there were eight daily stagecoaches stopped at the old Stage Coach House, where horses were exchanged and food and lodgings were provided. A fare on the stage line from Baltimore to Frederick was $2.00.
Both the Stage Coach House and Mr. Pancoast's House have fallen victim to time and are no longer standing. But the two-story brick house across the road to your left is one of the many buildings still in existence along the Pike that have historical significance: over time it served as the Lisbon Female Seminary, a tollhouse for the Pike, and the home of Richard E. Coursey, village blacksmith and wheelwright.
The Caleb Pancoast Hotel stood until the 1950s. The hotel in the front of the house was added to serve travelers on the old National Pike, and still stands at the west end of town.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2008 photos: Equipment this year: I was using three cameras -- the Fuji S9000 and the Canon Rebel Xti from last year, and a new camera, the Fuji S100fs. The first two cameras had their pluses and minuses and I really didn't have a single camera that I thought I could use for just about everything. But I loved the S100fs and used it almost exclusively this year.
Trips this year: (1) Civil War Preservation Trust annual conference in Springfield, Missouri , (2) a week in New York, (3) a week in San Diego for the Comic-Con, (4) a driving trip to St. Louis, and (5) a visit to dad and Dixie's in Asheville, North Carolina.
Ego strokes: A picture I'd taken last year during a Friends of the Homeless event was published in USA Today with a photo credit and everything! I became a volunteer photographer with the AFI/Silver theater.
Number of photos taken this year: 330,000.
