Goshen, Maryland: A History and its People


Goshen Mills was the site of the first polling place in Montgomery County, Maryland. In 1853, the local store/inn became the local post office. Many original homes remain in Goshen and the history of these homes, and many early Goshen people, are mentioned in the book. Also included are memories and histories written by Katherine Poole and Ella Plummer, a collection of local ghost stories, a genealogy of Samuel Davis (local miller), his picture, and pictures of his homestead and mill. Other noteworthy features include a map showing historical locations, photographs or sketches of these as well; Goshen directories for 1879, 1880, 1882; and a list of postmasters and their appointment dates. The author, a resident of Goshen, has collected all the history she has been able to find on the area, interviewed a number of local people, and has given presentations on Goshen’s history and her collection of Goshen ghost stories.
