Wye Mills in Talbot County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The “Little House” in the Shade
The Queen Anne Garden Club restored the “Little House”, as they affectionately called it, in 1952. The foundation was strengthened, windowpanes repaired, and a walkway laid. The house was furnished as a classic American one-room schoolhouse, though it may have just been a dwelling house. The furnishings included a schoolmaster's desk and stool, a long pine table with benches, and a dunce stool.
