More about this marker. Marker is on house's front lawn, to the right of the front steps and behind the sidewalk.
Regarding Wynne-Randall. The house's plantation days are long-gone. Its surroundings have evolved from rural cotton fields to city streets, homes, and businesses of the city of Washington.

As of 2009, the house remained within the family, its owners being 4th-generation descendants of its builders. The house was featured in that year's annual Washington-Wilkes Spring Tour of Homes.
