Also known as "Little Olney". Built by Whitson Canby c. 1800. Roger Brooke acquired the property for his daughter Sarah and her husband Dr. Charles Farquhar in 1822. They named the home after the town of Olney, England, the hometown of their favorite poet William Cowpers. When Charles became postmaster he changed the name of the town from Mechanicsville to Olney after his home. The Brooke-Farquhar family owned the home until 1925.
