Originally called Gerrard, the town of Inwood and the surrounding area is home to numerous orchards. The C.H. Musselman Company opened an apple processing plant in Inwood in 1920. The processing plant was very convenient to the Pennsylvania Railroad line and the many apple orchards of the Shenandoah Valley. By the late 1920s the Musselman plant had become the first apple processing plant to exclusively produce apple sauce. All of this was significant to Inwood’s establishment and growth.
