"Accident, MD" Accident by davecallahan

Accident Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 3 photos

We drive a bit out of our way on vacation just to stop at places with weird names or histories. This is one of the former.
Population 350, all farm families it appears.
Route 219 runs right through the center of town.
The town consist of 6 streets in the east-west orientation and 4 streets in the north-south direction.

One thing is no accident... there is lots of natural gas in the area and the original land owner probably knew that all along.

wikipedia info:
140 households, 100 families; $40000 annual family income for two-income families

ZIPCODE 21520 is Accident in Garnett County
039-37-41N 079-19-12W
39.628074, -79.319996
Area Code is 301

interesting facts

The town founder owned the land and had two different surveyors lay out the area for a town and by "accident" the two surveying teams came up with the same place to build.
