Offutt’s Crossroads: The Early History of Potomac and its Founding Family
With Ralph Buglass 
May 24, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
      
This talk and slide presentation covers the “first family” of Potomac: the Offutts for whom Potomac was originally named (Offutt’s Crossroads). The talk, by a descendant of the Offutt family, explores when and how the village came to be called Potomac, with feuding among the family, the end of slavery, a business partnership gone bad, and attempted murder all playing a part—not to mention a few ghostly appearances in later years!
