United States Capital for a Day
— War of 1812 Bicentennial Brookeville Maryland——August 26, 1814 - August 26, 2014 —Known as the Miller's House, this modest stone structure was likely built by the town's founder Richard Thomas, Jr. in the 1790s for the operator of his mill, which stood adjacent to this house, along Reedy Branch of the Hawlings River. The house was banked into the hillside to include ground level entries both the front and rear, with a kitchen in the lower level, a more formal level in the middle, and a sleeping loft above. Being of stone, it is the most substantial of the three houses Thomas built for the mill workers.
