I'm cuirous. How old are the maps in question?
Reason I ask. I've seen one or two maps in my time that contain a printer's error.
In the initial runs of these maps, the DAHLGREN CHAPEL (which, as you know, is nearly opposite the Mountain House, on the north side of the National Road) was mistakenly labeled as the "Mountain House." (Subsequent printings moved the label to the right structure.)
I'm wondering if something similar is not the case in the maps to which you refer.
