- 2 of my Samuel Taylor Suit's "Little Brown Whiskey Jugs" from the 1870's to 1880's on display for "Census History Day" at the Census Bureau headquarters in Suitland, Maryland. Suitland was named after Mr. Suit who owned much the land in the 1870's and 1880's and made his fortune selling his "1869" rye whiskey in these jugs. Census Bureau headquarters has been in Suitland since 1942. When the Census History staff asked me to bring these jugs to display how could I say no? #whiskeyhistory #historic #ryewhiskey #scotch #rye #marylandryewhiskey #marylandhistory #whisky #oldbottles #whiskeybottles #whiskeyporn #marylandrye #marylandhistory #marylandwhiskey #whiskeyjugs #antiques #collecting #antiquecollection #antiquecollector

- Our family camping trip wrapped up this weekend (with minimum eye rolls, groans and shoulder slumping foot dragging) on a short hike to the Turkey Point Light Station. The tower and keeper's house were built in 1833 by John Donahoo, who was responsible for the construction of at least twelve lighthouses in Maryland & Virginia between 1825 and 1853. (seven still stand) Though the tower is only 35' tall, it's perch on the bluffs of Turkey Point make it the third highest focal point on the Chesapeake Bay. The tower's location at the confluence of the Bay and Elk River made it a key navigational marker for vessels continuing up the river to the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal which opened in 1829 and reduced by nearly 300 miles the water route between Philadelphia and Baltimore. The lighthouse is also notable because it was tended by more women keepers than any other lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay. The last keeper at the lighthouse, Fannie May Salter, assumed her position following the death of her husband in 1925 and only after President Calvin Coolidge overrode the Civil Service's judgment that she was not fit to serve at the age of 43. When Mrs Salter retired in 1947 she had 45 years experience tending light stations. All of the women light keeper's histories are detailed in a NPS publication for Women's History Month and from the good folks at the Turkey Point Light Station Inc, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the light Station. #historicpreservation #history #historicalsite #historicarchitecture #preservation #restoration #lighthouse #chesapeakebay #turkeypointlighthouse #womenshistory #stories #baylife #lightstation #lighthousekeeper #marylandhistory

- Chesapeake Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. This is the only bottle of this whiskey I've ever seen and it was on the bottom shelf for $12, but look at that great label! It's the only reason why I got it. Research shows it may have been distilled by Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky. Bottled by Atlantic Distillers Co. in Bardstown, KY. #bourboncollector #kentuckybourbon #bourbonwhiskey #whiskey #liquorbottles #whisky #bourbon #sourmash #kentuckywhiskey #whiskeybottle #kentuckystraightbourbonwhiskey #marylandwhiskey #marylandryewhiskey #marylandstraightryewhiskey #marylandrye #marylandhistory
