Founder of Dickerson, MD

The village of Dickerson is one of a number of late 19th C. towns in Montgomery County that owe their development to the construction of the Metropolitan Branch of the Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad. The land, which comprises the town, was a 217-acre parcel inherited by his mother, Christy A. Dickerson, in 1857 from the estate of her brother, Nathan T. Hempstone. William established a general store and post office.
