Brief History of the Greek-Revival home known as Lane Place
Lane Place was a private home until 1939 when Helen Elston Smith (Joanna Lane’s niece) died and willed the house and its contents to the Montgomery County Historical Society. Since then it has been a museum open to the public. 95% of the furnishings belonged to the Lanes or the Elston family (Joanna’s family).
