About Levi Price

Levi Price owned and operated a distillery in Hyattstown, Maryland.

1835, in Frederick County, Maryland, in what was then the Urbana District, near the present community of Hyattstown. His father was Elijah Price, a well-known farmer who himself had been born in that locale. His mother was Sarah Ann Wolfe. There is little information on Levi Price’s early life and education but he soon showed signs of being a canny businessman. When he launched himself into business in 1858 at the age of 23, he had only 93 cents to his name. His initial enterprise was to rehabilitate an old mill where he began a small flour milling operation. Price’s milling venture proved so successful that in 1867 he had the financial strength to build a three story high distillery at the point where Bennett Creek crosses Green Valley Road. He seems to have succeeded rapidly in the whiskey trade. The 1904 newspaper states: “Levi Price has undoubtedly engaged in a business which he is well suited for, and long years of experience and an accurate knowledge of grain has helped make him what he is.”
