Wright's Chance was moved to this location in 1964 from its original site 6 miles east of town. Unlike the large brick plantation houses that have better survived, this type of frame structure was much more common during the Colonial period. The house dates to the mid- to late-18th century and is one room deep and two rooms wide, with a central passageway. Living space in the upper story was expanded by the use of a gambrel roof. The beautiful interior wood paneling and large fireplaces mark the house as belonging to a gentleman of means. Wrights Chance is owned by the Queen Anne's County Historical Society.
