Why Our Town Is Called "Accident"

About the year 1751, a grant of land was given to Mr. George Deakins by king George II of England in payment of a debt. According to the terms, Mr. Deakins was to receive 600 acres of land anywhere in western Maryland he chose. Mr. Deakins sent out two corps of engineers, each without knowledge of the other group, to survey the best land in this section that contained 600 acres.

After the survey, the engineers returned with their maps of the plots they had surveyed. To their surprise, they discovered that they had surveyed a tract of land starting at the same tall oak tree and returning to the starting point. Mr. Deakins chose this plot of ground and had it patented "The Accident Tract" -

Hence, the name of the town
