Significance: Originally built in 1801, Riversdale was planned by Henri Joseph the Baron de Stier and his son-in-law George Calvert, a descendant of the Lords Baltimore. It was built to resemble de Stier's Belgium home. Architecturally, it is important for its role as one of the best late Georgian, five part houses in Maryland.
