Oxon Hill Farm - Oxon Cove ParkA 175-year-old brick stable is rare in this region. Most stables and barns built in Maryland in the 1800s were made of wood and had one story, not two. Brick buildings were more expensive to build, but lasted longer. When this stable went up, perhaps the DeButts family felt wealthy enough to build for the future. Brick stables were common in England and Ireland at the time, so a building like this might have seemed natural to them.
