The settlement was called "Shawanese Old Town" because it was the site of a Shawnee village abandoned about a decade ealier. In later years the explanatory prefix was dropped from the name and the place because known simply as "Oldtown." Cresap's son Michael Cresap was born at Oldtown. A post office was established there on May 26, 1870. Oldtown is connected by a one-lane low water toll bridge to Green Spring in Hampshire County, West Virginia. (from wikipedia)
