Main Street, Accident, pre 1914.

Accident, Maryland: Main Street. Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


MAIN STREET, ACCIDENT, MD. This picture was taken before 1914. The paving of the street was completed in 1915.

Buildings standing on the left are the Philip Smith home, the Goehinger home, J.L. Englehart General Store, and a vacant building. Buildings on the right are Ries' Saloon and Hotel, the Englehart Funeral Home, the G.W. Englehart home, the Zinkan home, a general store (now Matthew's Store), the Richard Fairall home, and the Zion Lutheran Church.

The absence of many sidewalks is quite evident. Where they did exist, they were made of wood or stone.
Wells at the time were hand dug and it was not unusual for several families to obtain water from the same well. Privies existed at the end of each lot and usually were kept clean. A catalog provided "toilet tissue".
