The youngest Marylander to sign the Declaration of Independence made his home in this unusual hyphen house. Called Haberdeventure, the home was restored by the National Park Service after the main section burned in 1977. Visitors can see exhibits in the two kitchens, the first-floor bedroom and the beautifully paneled East Room, which still holds Stone's desk. Because as many as 35 people lived here, George Washington probably didn't sleep here -- but, because Stone was a friend, he probably did visit. Special programs are scheduled for the Fourth of July and there's a December candlelight tour. Stone and his wife Margaret are buried here. Walking paths take visitors around the property.
