Local history buff, Page Henley, entertained over 40 members and guests of Yankee Point Racing and Cruising Club last Wednesday evening in the latest in the series of the club’s Fireside Chats. Henley spoke for nearly an hour on 17th Century Virginia emphasizing Lancaster County.
Upper Lancaster County played an important role from the early beginnings of the county. The first courthouse is believed to have been located on Ball land. The next one was built in Queenstown and the third, in 1741, was built where the current courthouse is now, said Henley. The Morratico Trail was a major land route, connecting Towles Point, through Monakson to Huntsville and up to the Potomoc. It followed the footpaths set out by the Native Americans.
Steamboats were a major source of transportation from prior to the Civil War through the 1930’s when several severe storms knocked out wharfs and docks. Ferries crossed the rivers and connected landmasses all over the county.
Henley regaled his audience with tales of life in the first colony and human-interest stories. “He was delightful!”, exclaimed one member.
