    Woodsboro, Maryland


    Ca. 1825-1850

    The Dublin Road Lime Kiln is a well-preserved example of a private lime burning

    kiln of the mid-19th century. Many farms in the Woodsboro vicinity had kilns

    due to the easy access to limestone outcrops and deposits in the area. Lime

    was used in fertilizers and in building mortar.

  • Dublin Road Lime Kiln Frederick County

    7.1 Description

    Survey No. F-8-107

    The Dublin Road Lime Kiln is a rubble stone, single chimney lime burning kiln built possibly in the second quarter of the 19th century on the east side of Dublin Road, about 1/3 mile south of the intersection of Gravel Hill Road near Woodsboro, Maryland. The kiln is built into a hillside facing south and is about 20 ft. high by 15 ft. wide. A semi-circular opening is centered in the base, outlined by a gauged stone arch. The kiln is on private property behind a locked gate, but is located about 40 ft. from the edge of Dublin Road and is easily visible during winter months. The site is overgrown by vegetation and is not in use.

    8.1 Significance

    Survey No. F-8-107

    The Dublin Road Lime Kiln is a well-preserved example of a farm lime kiln of the second quarter of the 19th century. The geology of central Frederick County includes many outcrops of limestone near the surface and lime kilns were a common feature in the vicinity of Woodsboro. Agricultural lime for use in fields was the principal product, but lime for building mortar was also burned in the kilns. The 1873 Titus Atlas of Frederick County shows many lime kilns in the vicinity of Woodsboro; few are in such good condition or as visible as tt1e Dublin Road Kiln. It is not shown on the Titus map, indicating the small kiln was for private use rather than a commercial kiln.
