1750. 3825 Lower Marlboro Rd.

Little remains from the early period of Lower Marlboro, with the exception of a handful of Chesapeake houses, of which this is the finest. While displaying the same identifiable configuration, Grahame House was erected of Flemish-bond brick with decorative glazed headers, a molded-brick water table and sills, segmental-arched windows, and a steeply pitched gable roof with a rear catslide. The other two are frame, including one used for a period as a general store and post office (c. 1800; 4215 Chaneyville Road), located close to the wharf site; and another (c. 1800; 6518 Lower Marlboro Lane) that was remade c. 1860 into an ornamented cottage with front porch and large dormer.
