Elkton Business

Elkton's Main Street area has changed over the years. Here are descriptions of the large and well stocked Elkton Home and Farm Store, the frigid, musty ice skating rink, and the Woodmen's barbecues. Forrest Bates describes the Elkton of the past as “a pretty booming little place,” where revelers could “dance on the top of the roof” of a tavern, according to Ann Smith.
