Welcome to Sykesville Stories by Jack McBride White

It all started back in 1868, the day of the Great Flood, when the monster made her first unpleasant appearance.

Now, if you're not familiar with the Great Flood, or the monster, for that matter, you've got some catching up to do, and I suggest you drop everything and
click these words that says Click Here.

And right now, because I hear that monster's coming back for revenge, and you just might want to get properly prepared for the misery and mayhem that's likely to come along with her.

And besides, I've got a surprise for you. And donuts.

Dr. Alfred B Dimwitson

Once upon a time, Jack and Andrea White had a website called Sykesville Online. Now there's this.

It's a collection of stories, videos, photographs, and facts about the town of Sykesville and thereabouts, as we set about to make it famous.


There will be books, each with several stories. Volume 1, The Town that Refused to Die, is ready. You can head to Main Street in Sykesville and get a copy at A Likely Story Bookstore, or you can order it online.

P.S. We live in Hawk Ridge Farm in Sykesville. Jack White ran the town museum for 5 years and has an interesting story about why he doesn't run it anymore. He's also written three books that involve the town, which you can check out here.

We are not in any way affiliated with the town of Sykesville.

Way back in the eighties, some people got the idea it would be smart to knock down the town's decaying old train station. These are three of the people who stopped them. Do you know who they are? You can find the answer in Sykesville Stories, Volume 1.
