War of 1812 Bicentennial
—United States Capital for a Day —The Moore built this worker's cottage, probably in the late 1790s. Moore was married to Mary Brooke, one of Deborah Thomas's sisters, and the Moores lived on a farm adjacent to Brookeville. Moore was a farmer, inventor, engineer and entrepreneur who also owned a tan yard near this cottage. Like those built at the other end of town by Richard Thomas, the house is banked into the hillside with a stone ground level kitchen and a log-constructed main level. Over the years, it was home to millwrights, shoemakers, seamstresses, and small-scale shopkeepers.
