I took a trip out to see Cats Paw Organic Farm in Union Bridge, Maryland last week. Learned a bit about the local history and saw some rural parts of Maryland not too many see. Lots of interesting things in some of these small Maryland country towns.
I wish the railroad museum would have been open, but since it wasn’t Sunday it was closed.
One of the battle of Gettysburg Union heros made his final journey at this train station. I read with great interest this story.
Didn’t know that farming history ran deep round here.
I walked around Cats Paw Organic Farm. With it being early season there isn’t much growing in this field yet, other than grass and weeds. Rudy, the owner showed me around and gave me some heirloom tomato plants for my garden and some tatsoi. I’ll be plucking unbelievably good tomatoes in July from that gift. Love those Brandywine and Cherokee Purple tomatoes.
This building with its mural caught my eye on the main drag. I didn’t look to be open during my brief visit.
Don’t know if I’ll ever pass that way again, but I’m glad I made the drive. There are probably a hundred towns like Union Bridge in Maryland waiting for my curiosity to grab me and take me for a ride. Nothing like a good road trip through Americana.
