Mrs. K’s Toll House. Meet at First Baptist Church at 10:30 am. Confirm with Chris Hooke. Return at 3:00 pm. Approx. cost for lunch: $15.00
Long a favorite of DBC Seniors, Mrs. K’s Toll House Restaurant is situated in what was the last operating tollhouse in Montgomery County. Just like modern day tollgates, travelers would stop and pay a toll before using the privately owned road. The Washington-Colesville-Ashton Turnpike ran from Silver Spring to Ashton along what is now Route 29. The resident farmer, Mr. Allen, accepted the tolls of about 4 cents a horse. See their fine antiques display and beautiful gardens.
