The 1957 photo below shows a store in Barrelville, MD. As shown here, the store was called the Old Toll Gate General Store. The photo was taken by a local area resident who is a life-long camera buff, and was provided to Korns.org by Mike McKenzie. Mike reports that:
When I showed the photo to my Uncle M. Korns, he also noted that Mr. Caleer was blind, yet could tell money and give change. My uncle didn't go there much, but they stopped in once in awhile for candy.
Mike reports that if one is on Route 36 heading from Corriganville to Mount Savage, and turn onto Route 47 in Barrelville, the store is the first building on the left. It is no more than a few hundred feet from the intersection. The old Route 36 used to pass directly in front of it.
