Indian tribes have lived or hunted in Frederick County for 12,000 years, but in more recent history it is thought that primarily the Susquehanna tribe encamped in and around Linganore Creek. In the early 1700s hunting parties would come down from Pennsylvania to camp near Linganore Creek while they hunted game to feed their tribe.
Early settlers claimed the Susquehanna named this area “Laughing Hills” because Indian children could be heard playing and singing in the creek and among the hills and trees of Linganore. Many Indian artifacts have been found in an around old camp sites along the Linganore Creek area. Some discovered relics date back to 4,000 B.C. Gaining access to “Indian Caves” can be achieved from several points within the Meadows Village. A set of stairs off of Glen Lane provides one main access point.
Linganore Creek used to be covered. There are only 3 surviving covered bridges in Frederick County today. According to Harry Richardson, a well-known artist and Linganore neighbor on Quiet Cove Road, bridges used to be covered in the mid-1800s to protect the wood planks from the weather. Today we cross a lake, but in the 1860s, Linganore was only a creek where many millers built gristmills (mills for processing grains into flour) and sawmills along the creek.
