Reed Creek Farm

Reed Creek Farm was among the last colonial properties to be built in Maryland. The current owner is only the third to occupy the late Georgian house which was begun in 1775. Little altered, the finely detailed interior of the Flemish bond structure retains its original floor plan. A rare example of classical nudity may be seen in an overmantel painting dated 1792. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.

A Garden of Tribute

Its exquisite walled garden was inspired by the owner's late wife. Its design by Barbara Paca, Ph.D. and Philip Logan, AIA, incorporates features of English gardens appropriate to the historic Tidewater setting. A whimsical spiraled mound planted with nepeta, roses, salvia, lilac, boxwood and bluebells overlooks Reed Creek.

Location

Reed Creek Farm is located 16 miles from the eastern end of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and six miles west of Centreville. Reed Creek Farm is on a tributary of the Chester River. Boaters are welcome to arrive by water.
