Once shaded by the might Wye Oak, a quiet brick structure, a story and half high sill stands today.The structure dates back to about 1800 and it is said by local lore to have served as a one-room schoolhouse.

The Queen Anne Garden Club restored the "Little House", as they affectionately called it, in 1952. The foundation was strengthened, windowpanes repaired, and a walkway laid. The house was furnished as a classic American one-room school­house, though it may have just been a dwelling house. The furnishings included a schoolmaster's desk and stool, a long pine table with benches, and a dunce stool.
