On this site in 1830 a hotel with a waiting room and ticket office was built to serve passengers of the B & O Railroad. Here horses were changed for the final 5-mile trip to Ellicott Mills. Hence the name Relay House. As the B & O Railroad grew the Relay House became an important stop for both east and westbound passengers.

During the Civil War it was an important transportation hub for the Union Army and many soldiers were stationed here. After the war it was used as a summer resort. The original building was destroyed by fire in 1898. The present house was built in 1899 and was used as a hotel and bar until prohibition. It is now a private residence.
