Live authentically. Open House Saturday, March 18th 11am-2pm. The Ross House was built beside the Potomac River in Bladensburg, Maryland in 1749 by Dr. David Ross, a surgeon in the Continental Army. During the War of 1812, it was used as a hospital for British and American soldiers. The home was carefully dismantled in 1957, but 22,000 bricks, windows, flooring, paneling , doors, and handmade nails were preserved for five years. In 1962, Leonard C. Crewe Jr. sought to build a colonial style home. He commissioned Bryden B. Hyde, a Baltimore-based architect and an officer for the Society for the Preservation of Maryland Antiquities, to design the home. Hyde suggested to Crewe to reconstruct a historic home instead. John Hurst Purnell Jr., an architect who specialized in the restoration of 18th and19th century homes, oversaw the project as a general contractor. The house was rebuilt with mortar made from oyster shells, a historically accurate additive. In addition to original elements from the Ross House, authentic mid-18th century materials from other buildings were used when needed. The successful reproduction of the original Ross House was completed in three years on the property known as Preservation Hill. The historical home has been meticulously preserved with concealed modern touches throughout. Masterful landscaping around the property includes indigenous plants and flowers known to early Maryland Colonials. Crewe enjoyed the process and was a dedicated preservationist. He set his sights on adding a guest house.
The Yeates House was built around 1738 in Turners Creek, Maryland. It was owned by Colonel Donaldson Yeates, commissary officer for the Eastern Shore in the Continental Army. Yeates purchased a seven-acre parcel with Tobias Rudolph, merchant of Cecil County, in 1770. Named Knocks Folly, it became a thriving village. In the 1960s, the president of the Kent Historical Society attempted to save the Yeates house at its original site, but it lacked enough interest to salvage it. In the late 1960s, Leonard C. Crewe Jr. purchased the Yeates House for $5,000 to accompany the Ross House as a guest cottage on Preservation Hill. He again gathered Bryden B. Hyde as the architect and John Hurst Purnell Jr. as the builder to work on the reconstruction of the Yeates House. The project was completed in three years. The preservation of history combined with modernity is eminent throughout the home.
