According to early documentation by Captain John Smith, Accokeek is situated on the site of Moyanone, a Piscataway Indian village. While the village was burned in 1622, numerous artifacts have been unearthed here with the cooperation of the Smithsonian Institution. Archeological and anthropological quests have yielded thousands of skeletons, indicating that the site was occupied for several hundred years. A museum located in the public library displays some of these finds. Clinton’s lure is almost entirely attributable to John and Mary Surratt. This guide from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Baltimore. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
