Big Tonoloway and Little Tonoloway Creeks empty into the Potomac River nearby. The Native American translation for Tonoloway is "long tail" or "wildcat". People of English, German, and Scots-Irish descent, who came down from present day Fulton County, Pennsylvania first settled this area in the 1730's. On a hill to the northwest, a small stockade fort was erected by the colony of Maryland in the fall of 1755. "Stoddert's Fort" was garrisoned by 15 men to protect the settlements at the Tonoloways from hostile Indian war parties. The fort was abandoned and burned by the colonists in the summer of 1756 upon completion of the more formidable Fort Frederick, 12 miles to the east.
