Single Family in DENTON

Rare opportunity to own a historical and nostalgic early Victorian style farmhouse and outbuildings... "Willson's Chance" is located near Denton and is sited on 1.1 acres. Only three families have owned the property for a total of 246 years of it's 268 year existence. The Willson's were the owners from 1732 until 1860 and were known for "generations of confidence and conscience". James Willson obtained the first Deed on Willson's Chance in 1732 and by 1749 had cleared 35 acres of the Great Forest of the Choptank in order to reside and farm there. The Willson's did the initial construction on the site as well as a "progression of additions". His descendants are credited with playing many key roles in planting Quakerism and cultivating an anti-slavery movement which included helping Harriett Tubman to escape to freedom. Colonel Richard Carter acquired the property in 1860. Carter, a Commissioned Colonel and State Senator, became an Advisor to President Polk and consolidated the buildings into a single consolidated living space. Captain Quentin R. Walsh became the third owner in 1963. Captain Walsh, a recipient of the Navy Cross in World War II, has the first U. S. Navy warship named for a Coast Guard Officer, the U.S.S. Walsh, was a man of extraordinary courage and diverse accomplishments. He captured enemy strongholds, saved ships and saved the whales by playing a key role in banning U.S. participation in open-sea whaling. The property includes the fascinating homesite, featuring heart of pine wooden floors, four wood burning fireplaces and five outbuildings. The outbuildings include the former granary which would make an excellent art studio, woodworking shop or small home business shop the creamery with metal roofing the five bay tractor shed an oversized 1.5 car garage and a firewood storage lean-to with a metal roof and cement pad.
