Significance: Wyoming is architecturally significant as a well preserved example of a substantial, early settlement period dwelling in the southern Tidewater tradition, the distinguishing feature of which is its one-and-a-half story, gambrel roof configuration. This once common early type is rarely found extant in Prince George's County today. The house reflects the telescoping evolution of form and function in architectural development that came with changes in style and technology. Evidence suggests that it began as a smaller, three bay structure with basement kitchen, expanded in the last quarter of the 18th century with two more bays, a separate kitchen building constructed ca. 1800, Federal period interior trim and a ca. 1850 wing connecting the main building with the kitchen building. It is significant historically as the home of the Marbury family, politically prominent, and with large landholdings in the Piscataway hundred, through the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
