Inscription.  This property was the home of Thomas Stone, one of the Maryland signers of the Declaration of Independence. As a member of the Continental Congress, Stone also helped draft the Articles of Confederation that would ultimately lead to the creation of the United States Constitution. Stone acquired this property in 1770. Shortly thereafter, he began building a house here, which would become the Stone family home for six generations.
