Snowden Hall


Rose Cottage, later called Snowden Hall, was built on Birmingham property south of the Patuxent River, a few miles east of Montpelier. Birmingham Manor was passed from Richard the "Youngest" to his son, John, to John's son, Rezin, and to Rezin's son, John Snowden. It was farmed by John and, in turn, by his son, John, until it was taken by the government in the 1930s and currently is under the Department of Interior. It was used by the Fish and Wildlife Service to hold tanks of fish. When the basement walls began to deteriorate it was condemned. However, it is accessible with permission of the Fish and Wildlife Service.
