Travel Through History- Taylorstown

As we enter 2012, our Mosby Heritage Area travel journal will highlight the rich history and scenery of northern Loudoun County west of US Route 15 and north of US Route 50.

The geographic threads that have always stitched this part of the County together are the Catoctin Mountains, the Catoctin Valley, and the valley "Between the Hills." Among these geographic entities our earliest settlers landed, their families and businesses grew, prospered, and died.

This month, we start our Travel Through History where it began around 1730, in and around the small hamlet of Taylorstown.

Images in this gallery were taken at the Catoctin Creek's confluence with the Potomac River, to Taylorstown via Furnace Mountain Road, and along Featherbed Road, Bald Hill Road, Yakey Lane, and Downey Mill Road, including Taylorstown.
