The site was part of a tract called "The Rock of Dumbarton" patented 1703 by Nintan Beall.The house was probably started 1799 by Samuel Jackson. It was completed 1805 by Joseph Nourse, first Registrar of the Treasury. He sold the property 1813 to Charles Carroll who named it "Bellevue." Purchased by this Society 1928, it was restored to the early Federal period, renamed; and opened to the public 1932. The house formerly blocked Q Street and was moved to Q Street and was moved to its present location, 1915.
