Inwood - Farmers Market

The hustle and bustle of the modern days Inwood give pause to reflect the Inwood of the 1880’s with its resort named Inwood Park. It was even more crowded at times of the year!

With the arrival of the Cumberland Valley Railroad extension, a resort was established. In 1890 a post office opened and that spurred the growth of a village around the park. From 1892-1913 an annual event took place called the Inwood Fair which drew 7,000-12,000 visitors each year. With the current population of Inwood around 3,000 people, can you imagine the traffic during the Fair?

The Cumberland Valley Railroad station in Inwood included a grain elevator which insured that local products could be shipped distances. Other products were wood products such as bark and railroad ties.

The original name for this area was Gerrard. The name change to Inwood was thought to come about in one of two ways; first, because the Park was “in the woods”. Another was because when an application was made for a post office the name was too similar to nearby Gerrardstown. The applicants visiting cousin from Inwood, California suggested his own hometown’s name.

In the early years of the 20th century an area co-op was formed by the apple orchardists; apples were grown because they were less likely than other fruits to be damaged in shipment and because they had a long shelf life. A school which taught apple growing was also formed. In 1920 C.H. Musselman Company from Pennsylvania opened an apple processing plant. By the late 1920’s the plant produced applesauce, the first plant of its kind.
