Founding Father John Dickinson was born in Trappe, as was Baseball Hall of Famer Frank “Home Run” Baker. John Eisenhower lives in Trappe.
Trappe began as a small crossroads hamlet, probably in the period between 1750 and 1760. It wasn’t until 1856 that Maryland’s General Assembly completed action on a new bill incorporating the Town of Trappe.
The “first known history and description of Trappe was originally printed in April 1874 issue of The Index, Trappe’s first newspaper, of which no copy is known to have survived. It likely was written by Robert Mullikin the editor and only exists because it was reprinted nine years later in the April 11, 1883 issue of the Trappe Enterprise, Trappe’s second newspaper, of which only one copy has survived. History hangs by a thread sometimes”. – James Dawson.
