Notes
Survey number HABS MD-294
Building/structure dates: 1765 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000387
Significance: Constructed in 1765 for Horatio Sharpe, Governor of Maryland, Whitehall is one of America's foremost Georgian structures. Hugh Morrison called it "one of the most interesting and important houses of the eighteenth century." Overlooking the Chesapeake and enhanced on the landside by a series of ha-ha's, Whitehall has a giant two story pedimented entrance portico supported by four fluted columns with Corinthian capitals. The design of the rich architectural detail has been attributed to the young William Buckland.
