A very small town of less than 200 people located between Lonaconing and Westernport. It is officially part of Lonaconing now, but the area is still know as Pekin or Nikep. There are a couple stories as to why the small town has two names. The actual story is most likely lost in history.
I live in a small town of 2,000 people. Oh yeah....I live in PEKIN.
