Hear Period Music
Hear and waltz to the tunes popular in the early 19th century, including the early English gentlemen’s club song that gave music to Key’s famous words in The Star-Spangled Banner. The Weems Creek Jammers provide the music. The Revolutionary-era home’s dining room provides plenty of space for waltzing.
This home of signer of the Declaration of Independence Samuel Chase remains a residence, as its last private owner willed it to a board of trustees to maintain as a home for elderly women, who “needed relief from the vicissitudes of life.” Six to eight independent ladies of all means live in the historic house to this day.
