It's been almost 250 years since Joseph Chapline founded the town of Sharpsburg, after following his father to Western Maryland and leading a militia unit in the French and Indian War. It was in the following year, 1764, that Chapline started selling the 187 lots among the eight streets he laid out for the town around a spring. Two-and-a-half centuries later, the boundaries are basically the same and the town consists of the same eight streets, although some of their names have changed, according to Sharpsburg Historical Society President Vernell Doyle.
