This home is owned by my former father-in-law, Lester Roane. My memories of this home, are from the years around 1983-1987. I remember the spiral staircase, coming down to the living room on one side and the other to the kitchen area. I was always told that the slave chains are still attached to the cellar walls, however I never went down there. Its architectural beauty inside is a work of art, which combined with the history is a time and place in my life, which I will always remember.
Editor's Note: Thank you for your interest in the Historical Marker database, and for sharing a bit of history about Brookland. If you were to find some historical photographs of the house in your family records, we'd be glad to host them here.
