Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Down at the General Store

This photo of the General Store in Bellevue, Maryland was donated to the Talbot Historical Society by the Dorchester Historical Society in 2017! Did you know that the Bellevue area is almost as old as Oxford. The town was officially laid out and named by Col. Oswald Tilghman,son-in-law of Dr. Samuel Harrison of nearby Clay’s Hope Farm! Interesting that it was either named after Col. Tilghman’s wife Belle or after an earlier Kent Island Harrison family home named “Belleview”! Facts: “From Pot Pie to Hell & Damnation” by Dr. Laurence G. Claggett 2004, CBMM.

Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Making Way for Safeway

This Talbot Historical Society H. Robins Hollyday Collection photo was taken c.1968 of the Calvary Methodist Church on North Washington Street, Easton, Maryland being demolished to make room for the new Safeway structure! The Calvary Methodist Church was built in 1830. It was sold in the late 1950’s when three Easton Methodist churches joined to build St. Mark’s United Methodist Church. The church housed the Easton YMCA until the new YMCA was built in 1968.
