40 Saint Paul St.- Weldon: This home is called Weldon after the original land grant “Well Done”. It was probably built by the Weast family who acquired the property in 1806. In 1876 it became the home of the Bomberger family. Harvey Bomberger, a Maryland state senator and co-founder and first chairman of the Washington County Historical Society lived here as a youth. In 1907, Maude Bomberger, the daughter of Weldon’s owner, published Colonial Recipes from Old Virginia and Maryland Manors, which included recipes from famous area families,
Mount Vernon, and the White House.
