Welcome to Sykesville Stories by Jack McBride White

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

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.

Coming Soon. The true story of the Sykesville Monster.

Was there ever really a Sykesville Monster? Well, the answer is yes and no. It depends on your definition of "really."

This much is certain, there were some strange goings on around here in 1973. It started with a howling dog, a man named Anthony, and a very big footprint.

Check back soon, for the full story.

 

Lloyd, Jim, and Thelma inside the abandoned Sykesville train station

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.
