SZSnUST across from "The Villa, " on the opposite shore of Goldsbor- ough's Creek, is Myrtle Grove, the home of Mr. Charles Golds- borough, and as fine a specimen of the old colonial manor house as we have. Of a differ- ent type from Wye, more like Readbourne, it is built of brick along plain and simple lines, yet withal an impressive and dignified build- ing.
The frame part of the house was built in 1734 and the brick part in 1795. Contrary to the story generally told about Myrtle Grove, the b
...ricks were not brought from England but were made on the farm, and the exca- vation from which the clay was taken can still be seen.
The interior of the house is noteworthy for its broad hall and graceful stair; the rooms all of lofty ceilings, furnished now, as a hundred 54 Talts of Old Maryland years ago, with solid mahogany furniture of massive yet simple design.
Near the house are a number of gigantic trees, some of which must be several centuries old, while the driveway, now overgrown with grass and weeds, is lined on either side with trees of great size and beauty.
