Built 1813, probably by Daniel Megredy. Lafayette was entertained here in 1824. Later owned by Cornelius Smith (1792-1858), farmer and philanthropist who financed road construction to create jobs for the unemployed and aided public education in Port Deposit. Smith willed house in 1858 to his stepgrandson, Lucius A. C. Gerry, who saw action in the Civil War as Artillery Officer in Capt. Alonzo Snow's Battery B.
