Charles Dick House

-A A +A
c. 1740. 1796 and later, additions. 1107 Princess Anne St.

The Charles Dick House originally stood on the western edge of town and faced open land, siting still reflected in its large front yard. The dating of the Mount Vernon–style portico is controversial; some have claimed that it was added in the 1790s, but that is doubtful. It may be a very early imitation of Washington's home dating from the early nineteenth century.
