This modest wood-frame structure with a gambrel roof is a rare surviving example of a building type that was common in 18th-century Annapolis.  It was just this sort of inexpensive rental housing that the new state government pressed into service as barracks for military recruits during the Revolutionary War.  Today, the building is open on weekends from April – November, and visitors can learn what life was like for the “common and middling sort” in early Maryland.  Guides dressed in colonial attired offer guests the opportunity to see and handle authentic and reproduction artifacts.
