At the corner of Maryland Ave and King George St sits an interesting museum. What once was a unique home is now a tourist attraction that houses some of the finest antique furniture that will take a visitor back in time to when the house was at its prime. The house also seems to come with a very unusual story.
In the 1770s Mathias Hammond purchased land at what is now 19 Maryland Ave. He hired an architect named William Buckland to build him a unique home on the property. Despite the work put into building the house, Hammond never lived in the home. His home was in Gambrills, which he stayed until his death.
The home was a rental for awhile to Judge Jeremiagh Townley Chase. Afterward it was owned by multiple well known families such as the Pinkneys and the Loockerman families. It also at one point belonged to the architect William Buckland
