Lost Rockville — 1801 to 1850

Hungerford Tavern was the site of some of the most important events in the history of Montgomery County. Three [illegible] prior to the Continental Congress in 1774, local citizens met at Hungerford Tavern to protest oppressive actions of the British Parliament. The first election of County officials was held here when the County was organized in 1776, and the Tavern was the location of the first County court from 1777 to 1779.

Hungerford Tavern was owned by Joseph Wilson from 1786 to 1791 and by his granddaughter, Susan Russell, in the 1840s. Archaeological digs were conducted at this site in 1973 and 1987. Artifacts retrieved from these digs are displayed by Peerless Rockville [in the?] Red Brick Courthouse.
