Barnett's Tavern (site)

Millstone Road
Millstone, MD 21750

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

Two miles further on to the westward, and before the once familiar tavern of Widow Bevans [Travern] entirely recedes from view, the old wagon stand of David Barnett is reached. His house was a large log building, on the north side of the road. Here the first transportation line of six-horse teams, John Bradfield agent, had relays, its next relay eastward being the house of John Miller, before mentioned. Barnett was a jolly old landlord, fond of exchanging jokes with old wagoners and other patrons. He had a manner and a method of pleasing his guests, and did a large and profitable business.
