Built circa 1794 on the second lot to be sold in Centreville, the Tucker House is a good example of what many of the earliest homes in the town were like. It originally was two rooms deep and one room wide, a popular style of the Federal period in the Tidewater region. A 1797 tax assessment valued the house and lot at $867. The house was enlarged in about 1815 and again in the late 19th century. The Tucker family purchased the house in 1898. Their heirs donated the property to the Queen Anne's Historical Society in 1968, and it houses the organization's collection of genealogical records, books, and early documents. A small garden, restored and maintained by the Queen Anne's County Garden Club, and the post-and-plank meat house in the backyard are also notable.
