Shultz's Tavern (site)

Formerly/Also Known As Schultz's Tavern, Shulty's Tavern

Main Street
Grantsville, MD 21536

Historical marker text:

In 1845 Adam Schultz built an imposing brick inn behind you, directly across the street from the Casselman Inn. The business was closed in 1852. In 1868 the family donated the property to be used as a school. The Schultz Tavern was torn down and the materials used to build the school building.

From Searight's The Old Pike (1894):

Adam Shultz [sic] kept a tavern at the east end of Grantsville back in the forties, and dying in charge, was succeeded by his son Perry, who continued it down to the year 1852, when the ancient glories of the old pike began to weaken and wane. The Shultz House was an imposing brick structure, on the south side of the road, and was kept for a while by the veteran David Mahaney, and at one time by Jesse King. Perry Shultz was subsequently elected sheriff of Alleghany county, Maryland.
