Across the road stood the three mile oak under which General George Washington passed on his way to Annapolis December 19, 1783 to resign his commission as Commander in Chief of the Continental Armies. According to tradition, General Smallwood, General Gates and distinguished Annapolis citizens met Washington at this spot, three miles from the State House. General Lafayette, on his return to America to visit with friends of revolutionary days, passed here on December 17, 1824. A stone bearing commemorative plaques was relocate in 1967 beside Route 450 about two tenths of a mile toward Annapolis from this point.
