My Great Grandfather’s store.

Thats a shame. Nice stone work lost forever

I can still remember sitting the car while my Dad went to get paint or parts

Donna Sherman Berryman, look at this!!!!

Today's PHOTO FRIDAY is of Sophia's Dairy, featured here in 1939. This historic farm house is one of the oldest dwellings in Harford County. This Georgian center-hall house was built in 1768 by the third generation of the Hall family to own this land, Sophia White Hall and her husband Aquilla Hall. There are records that showed Martha Washington stayed in the house while traveling to and from Philadelphia.

My friend and colleague Thomas Sawyer led many Harford County Historic Tours back in the last century. They were HCC events and always sold out. At that time it was a private residence so we never ventured inside. But I have been in and it is memorable in so many ways.

Box Hill North was Cedar Grove farm before it became Box Hill North owned by the Niblett family. Before that it was owned by Edward Aquila Howard Hall 1844-1917 a decent of Aquila and Sophia Hall through Thomas White Hall 1800-1889 of Constant Friendship. There was also a connection to Walter Wilks Preston 1863-1951 who married the widow of Thomas White Hall 1851- 1881, Elizabeth Pue of York Pennsylvania. This Thomas White Hall was the brother of Edward A. Howard Hall of Cedar Grove Farm, now Box Hill North.

Is this the same Aquila hall who built limespring farm on glen arm road in Baltimore county? The mht form says that he was an attorney in Baltimore and Harford counties, wife was anne tolley.

Some scenes from House of Cards filmed here (interior)

I really enjoy these pics of historic places in HC with explanation.

I remember taking a tour there a few years ago during the Historical County Tours….beautiful house….rank with someone’s tobacco.

Penelope Xecominos Green used to be behind Waters Edge very cool

The store at the bottom of the hill? We rode our bikes there at least once a week in good weather. But I think this photo is a bit before my time. I can’t even picture it looking like this, honestly. Is this really the Carsin’s Run Store?

This old building is directly across the road from Adams Jeep . The Harold Knight's ran a general store, (called the Clover Farm Store) during the 1950's and also a feed store next door. The building also had a number of apartments in it. Years later after the Knight's sold the building it became a number of businesses, one that local's may remember was a motor cycle shop. It was never a liquor store. That is the Carsins Run store on the right side of 22 going towards Aberdeen.

Does the photo have any writing on the back? Identifying the people perhaps or the year? This was my Grandparent's store, I'm very happy to have this photo!! Thank you!

Awesome! I lived in that building when Ty was a baby.

Wow that's a classic now it's yet again another liquor store ✌️

And the gentlemen on the porch! So interesting!

I think it is. Front has changed.

Not the old Carsin's Run deli. This is across from the dealership. maps.app.goo.gl/eJWr5Xr63cv8uTXv8

Don't think this is Carsins Run store.
