Shell's Wagon Stand (site)

Main Street
New Market, MD 21774

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

New Market is a village west of McPherson's old tavern, and in Frederic county, Maryland. Here the stages stopped and changed teams, and an old wagon stand was kept by one Shell. It is said of Shell that his name differed from his table, in that the latter contained no shells, but the best of savory viands.
