This plaque and garden commemorate the site of Brown's Tavern, a Prince George's County Historic Site that served travelers on the former Baltimore-Washington turnpike from the early 1830's to the early 1990's. It was constructed and owned by the stagecoach company of Richard Stockton and William B. Stokes. John Brown purchased the tavern in 1835 and operated it until his death in 1862. The tavern was the centerpiece of the Del Haven White House Motel and Cottages, which opened in the early 1940's. The deteriorated structure was demolished in November 2001.
