Significance: Harmony Hall is a fine example of early Georgian architecture. Built during the early to mid 18th century as a one-room-deep brick manor house with exceptional interior detailing, Harmony Hall is among the most distinguished early homes in Prince George's County. It has been the home of many wealthy county landholders over the centuries including the Tylers, Magruders, Addisons and Lyles. It is also of note for its spectacular river-front location, overlooking the Potomac River at Broad Creek.
