Cheney's Wagon Stand (site)

National Highway
Big Savage Mountain, MD 21532

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

A short distance west of Sand Springs, on the side of Big Savage mountain, an old wagon stand was kept by one Cheney, afterward by Jacob Conrod. It is a stone house, on the south side of the road. In Cheney's time at this house, Henry Clay Rush, who was an old wagoner, says that metalic mugs were used for drinking purposes, instead of glasses. He further states that the mugs were clean, and probably used through deference to the pure whisky of that day.
