War of 1812 Bicentennial
—United States Capital for a Day —One of the four federal style masonry houses that were standing in Brookeville in 1814, this house was built by real estate investor Caleb Pancoast about 1806 and sold shortly thereafter. In 1814 it was home of Margaret Brooke, the unmarried sister of town founder Deborah Brooke Thomas. Margaret had the means to live as an independent woman on the proceeds from the sale of inherited lands. The house began as a much smaller dwelling that fronted on Water Street. It was later expanded and the front entrance moved to face Market Street.
