Random Road

Once Upon A Time, . . .

Abandoned Road, in or near C&O Canal National Historic Park at Four Locks, near Clear Springs, Maryland.

Dilapidated entrance gate to road leading to Potomac Dell, a private home that at one time opened its grounds to the public, at no charge. The ad below describes all that it offered. The ad is from the Hagerstown, Maryland newspaper The Daily Mail, 23 May 1955, Mon, Page 2. The ad is the only information I could find about Potomac Dell so I can’t say when or why the property was abandoned. There is a large deteriorating house near the paved road.

Call me cynical, but I always mistrust ads that put “zoo” between quote marks. πŸ™‚ But seriously: Beautiful image … and a lovely trip down memory lane, too.

Hi. I did think that was a bit odd. Though I wondered why two men who owned a funeral home were offering free use of an isolated property in the woods. πŸ™‚ It must have been because I posted it on Halloween. πŸ™‚
