One of the visitors in the early 1800s to the town of Millstone, located east of Hancock along the National Pike, was Gen. Andrew Jackson. When weapons were fired honoring the visit, "Old Hickory" was asked why his horse didn't appear to be startled by the noise. Jackson, who would become the nation's seventh president in 1829, replied, "My horse and I have heard a similar sort of music before."
