Significance: The Merryman Road Log House is one of the oldest buildings in the area of Ellicott City, Maryland. It has played a prominent role in the history of area blacks; unfortunately, most of this heritage has not been recorded. The house is believed to have been built in the last decade of the eighteenth century, which would be contemporary with the settling of Ellicott City. In 1877, St. Luke's AME Church, late of Oella, Maryland, held services in the Merryman Road Log House until construction of its new Ellicott City church building could be completed.
