Pleasant Valley, Maryland Pleasant Valley, roughly half a mile north of Monkton, was a 19th Century railroad settlement, built around mining operations. The settlement is mentioned by name in Civil War records of 1864. It is shown in the 1877 Hopkins Atlas, which indicates buildings, a bridge over Gunpowder Falls, and a road leading west to Hereford. The village was established to mine iron ore and soapstone. The iron ore deposits, like others along the railroad at such points as Glencoe, Padonia, and Lutherville, were worked in the early 1860's because of their proximity to the Ashland Iron Furnace. By 1864 this furnace had changed over to anthracite fuel because of easy access to coal transported by the Northern Central Railroad and could produce more pig iron, requiring new sources of ore. Pleasant Valley soapstone was used in minor quantities by the mills, foundries, and other industries along the railroad. By the late 1870's Pleasant Valley had become a compact village containing a railroad station, small houses, a tavern, and a hotel known as the "Rat Trap". The William H. Barnhart family were residents of Pleasant Valley from 1883 until 1901, with nine children in a small stone house, the remains of which can still be seen today next to the NCR Trail. Mr. Barnhart, a trackwalker or trackman for the Northern Central Railroad, was responsible for keeping the railroad tracks clear, safe, and operational from Pleasant Valley, MD to Parkton, MD. The town was dropped from train schedules in the 1890's and declined rapidly; by the early 1900's Pleasant Valley, the bridge, and Hereford road had disappeared from official maps. The iron ore and soapstone veins had been depleted, and their markets also disappeared. The site remained derelict for many years. At one time during the 1930's and 1940's the railroad used the old miller's house, and the "Rat Trap" became a meeting place for unemployed workmen during the Depression. Today Pleasant Valley exists only as a few crumbling remains which can be seen from the NCR Trail. The foundation of the "Rat Trap" Hotel, along with a few iron headboards, other stone foundations, bridge abutments and a spring head are all that remain.

Blackwater Presbyterian Church In the 17th century, the colony of Maryland was founded as a refuge for Catholics and members of other religious faiths then subject to persecution. Many of the early settlers of this region, then a part of Maryland, were Presbyterians who had been denied their freedom of worship. For many years local Presbyterians were forced to travel a great distance to the nearest church. In 1763, a congregation was organized in this area by Reverend Charles Tennent, the charismatic son of William Tennent, founder of Princeton University. Services were held in the homes of members until 1767 when the present Blackwater Presbyterian Church was constructed. Over time the travel conditions faced by many members resulted in the formation of separate churches in the growing communities of Ocean View and Frankford. By the late 19th century regular services at Blackwater had been discontinued. Occasional meetings were held until 1921, when the church organization was formally abolished. Since 1949 the property has been managed by a Trust established by the Tunnell family, who have been active supporters of the church since its founding. Blackwater Presbyterian Church was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Delaware Public Archives 2004 SC-190
