During the Civil War, historic Beallsville was known as Monocacy Church, home to the 1748 Anglican “Chapel of Ease” from which the town acquired its name.  Beallsville was a crossroads on the road from Rockville to the Monocacy River and Nolands ferry, making it a strategic spot for the Union.  It is also home to the historic Darby Store and the Monocacy Cemetery, which dates to the American Revolution.
