This circa 1744 plantation house still has its original paneling and glass windows and is one room deep and two rooms wide with a central hallway and large fireplace. A gambrel roof provided for living space upstairs.

The 18th century furnishings include original William Paca chairs, Chippendale and Hepplewhite furniture and Canton china. 

Using the Preservation Plan to guide our activities in 2019,  the Historical Society embarked on several projects.  The large trees imposing on the side of the house have been removed and efforts to clean the siding and picket fencing are being finished by fall.
