About Lewis Tabler

Lewis (Louis) Tabler

Soon after his marriage (September 28, 1805), he migrated to Hyattstown, Montgomery Co., MD with his parents. He purchased in the lower end of town 15a of land and a tavern, where he manufactured whiskey.

One of Hyattstown’s two major enterprises, a tannery, was founded by Louis Tabler about 1825. Tanning, like milling, was based on local natural resources – in this case, oak bark from nearby forests and hides from upland herds. Continued by his two sons, William and Abraham, it operated until shortly after Abraham’s death in 1868. The tannery consisted of 18 vats, a bark shed, flesher sheds, an engine house and other buildings. Water for the operation came from a dam located about a mile up Little Bennett Creek, and was carried to the tannery by a canal.
