Inscription.
In 1680, Town Lot No. 61 was granted by the Lords Proprietors to Elizabeth Willis, and in 1701 was deeded to William Elliott. This notable early Georgian house replaced a smaller house on the premises, and was built by Thomas Rose soon after his marriage in 1733 to Beuler Elliott, daughter of Thomas Elliott. In 1786, Doctor Joseph Ladd Brown was carried to his room in this house after being mortally wounded in a duel. It is alleged this his ghost still inhabits the house.
