Trappe Landing 1954
Trappe Landing grain elevators, circa 1954

"Trappe district is one of the most flourishing communities in the county. Possibly more grain is shipped from Trappe Landing than from any other public landing in Talbot. In the days of harvest the river is thick with schooners loading wheat day after day, and when the grain is all shipped fertilizer and slag make Trappe Landing one of the busiest water front sections in the county..." [From Easton Star Democrat Jan. 29, 1932]
