The Gassaway House was built about 1804 for Samuel and Anne Leeke. Brice John Gassaway purchased it in 1812 and he and his wife Dinah and two of their seven grown children were living here in 1814. Brice, a retired gentleman farmer from western Anne Arundel County, served as a militia officer during the American Revolution. His son George opened a store that was in operation in 1814 at the corner of Market and High streets. The house likely began with a side-hall and parlor; later another room flanking the hall and a rear kitchen ell were added.
