“An Important, Local Piece of Frederick History”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We visited here twice within two years and got the same small (just us), personal tour by a costumed docent. The house itself is as near original as could be maintained and there is furniture in it of the period. Roger Brooke Taney was a judge and later a Supreme Court Justice who occupied it for some years with his family. The upper floor (living quarters) up a tiny, curving stairway has a display of his life and career, and visitors are allowed to look around as long as they like. The tour continues outside to the kitchen and grounds, which also housed slaves originally. There is a kitchen garden (herbs) and I think an ornamental garden as well. It is very interesting to see this original structure in the midst of what was all country land circa 1700-1800.
