Begin this day trip to the northwest corridor in Reisterstown. Although little has been preserved of its Revolutionary era, the town retains some original buildings on Main Street. Today these structures house specialty and antiques shops. Westminster remains a peaceful, country town that is truly a pleasure to visit. Many of its fine buildings are included in the National Register of Historic Places. The town center is charming with its preserved eighteenth-century homes. Today’s visitors will delight in the variety of specialty shops among the historic sites. There have been few changes in Uniontown since the late nineteenth century. Uniontown is still the quaint, peaceful village it was then. In 1970, it was designated a Historic District. Visitors may delight in the number of antiques shops in the area. Merchants here specialize in handcrafts, antique furniture, and handmade reproductions. Settled in the early nineteenth century, the town of New Windsor was formerly called Sulphur Springs. It was renamed New Windsor in 1844 and today boasts a unique International Gift Shop, one of the largest of four such nonprofit outlets for artisans’ crafts in the country.
