Long Description:
Taken from the NRHP nomination form, "Built by David Lee I, this rubblestone building was probably originally a cabinetmaker's house and shop: the Maryland Legislature paid Lee E1QOO in silver and gold after the Revolution for services g rendered --i.e., for making rifle stocks for the local militia. It retained its artisan association throughout the 19th century: it is shown on the 1860 Curtis Map as "C. Shop" (thought to be the "Cooper Shop referred to in Ralph Sackett Lee's 1862 Estate Inventory); it is known that at that time the building was used for turning out barrels for the mill, "chair legs, stools and balusters, as well as tubs and casks. At other times, it was a cider mill and cannery" . In the 20th century (from 1910 to 1942) it housed a couple employed by the miller, the husband was a mill hand, the wife a maid. The two-story building has large corner quoins, one room per floor, and a slate-covered gable roof. A clapboard addition is attached to the south facade. The dwelling is two bays across and one bay deep; the windows have pegged frames but are at present covered over. The western facade is marked by an unusual chimney whose stone outside end curves into the wall, buttress-like."
