The Greater Sykesville Area

The Warfield Family

At the turn of the 20th century, the Warfield family, and Wade H.D. Warfield (1864-1935) in particular, left an indelible mark on our community. As with Sykesville's other prominent businessmen, Warfield dabbled in many fields of business, from lumber, to grain sales, to banking, and operating as a landlord. In addition to his local ventures, from 1916 to 1918 Wade H.D. Warfield served as a State Senator for Carroll County.

This slide show is the complete album donated by the Ridgely-Warfield family depicting Sykesville downtown scenes and interior and exterior photos of their homes including Raincliffe/Chihuahua (a historic home located near Freedom Park, which is part of the Maryland DNR resident curator program).  

We're just getting started. There are many more things to come.
