This house was apparently built in 1789. It looks that way, judging from the shutters. Elkton is one of those "George Washington slept here" kind of towns, with a history going back to the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 days. Much of the historical pride in the town comes from the moment when Washington and his troops stayed in Elkton during a march from Valley Forge to Yorktown. Or so I read on a placard. Posted by Hello
