Notes
Survey number HABS MD-10-7
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (DC FN-1).
Building/structure dates: 1704 initial construction
Significance: These are the remains of an important example of early 18th-century Maryland architecture. Although in ruinous condition, much can be learned of the construction and architecture of this period from its remains. The standing end walls reveal ghost images and other evidence of interior wall treatment, room plan, etc. The house was evidently among the finer homes in the county during the early 18th-century, being of permanent, partially brick construction with fine interior details such as paneled walls, chair rail and cornice molding -- all indicators of wealth for this period.
