On March 29, 1849 an advertisement appeared in Woodstock's Tenth Legion newspaper announcing the sale of Lawerence Pitman's "well known" tavern stand near Red Banks. Nothing else is known about this business.

Frequently Asked Questions about the map
Not necessarily. It is up to you to determine if any given location is one you can physically visit.
Placing historical stories on a map can be tricky. We choose locations based on what we think makes the most sense. Sometimes we get it wrong (and sometimes there is no "right" answer). Feel free to email us at

Browser geolocation is a relatively new technology. Some older web browsers may not be able to use this feature. Sometimes even the best, newest web browsers fail to load a correct location (or any location at all). Functionality depends on a number of additional factors, including the presence of conflicting browser plugins, network conditions, privacy settings, and more.
