Rare opportunity to own a valuable piece of history in Dayton. Howard Road is named for the once 240 acre farm assembled between 1859 and 1877 by George A. Howard, grandson of the 5th Governor of Maryland, John Eager Howard. After his death in 1903, Howard's son, Eugene sold 56 acres and a tenant house off the farm in 1908. 14106 has a date of 1907 in the basement and tax records confirm this dwelling was started that year by Eugene and Lillie Howard. Eugene died in 1937 and Lillie died five years later. The farm passed to their children who sold it out of the family in 1943. By 1967 the home farm was reduced to just less than 3 acres, and is now for sale. Complete history and deed transfer information can be found in the Document section of Bright. This charming early 20th century farmhouse has been lovingly preserved, renovated and improved by the recent owners of 40 years.
