Fowler's Wagon Stand (site)

Main Street
Boonsboro, MD 21713

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

One mile west of Zettle's, Robert Fowler kept a wagon stand. Fowler quit in 1839, and was succeeded by Emanuel Harr, who conducted the house for many years. Joe Garver, a noted blacksmith, had a shop at this point. Garver, it is said, could cut and replace as many as a dozen wagon tires in a single night. It was not an uncommon thing for the old blacksmiths of the road to work all night at shoeing horses and repairing wagons.
Old Wheeler's sunfish,
Bob Fowler's roast goose,
Warfield's ham,
Ain't that jam!
