History

Oakland has been lovingly maintained by the Price/Matthews family who kept most of its original features such as mantles, fireplaces, cupboards, windows and floors. The house's condition is attributed to the quality workmanship of the early Quaker builders.The property in which this house resides was granted to Mordecai Price by Lord Baltimore in 1723 under the grant, "Price's Chance." In the 1720s, a log house was built on the property. Then in the early 1800s, a brick addition was added. It was unique in that it was made of brick, a product not readily available. Most homes built then were made of materials common to the area, such as native stone, granite and limestone. Oakland is estimated to be the oldest house in Quaker Valley and is made of ballast brick brought in on horse and wagon from an English ship in the Baltimore Harbor. It is one of the few old brick structures in Baltimore County. The brick house is two and a half stories, plus a cellar. Its hallway has a lovely open stairway to the attic and is a fine piece of early Quaker workmanship. There are fireplaces in each of the four rooms located on two floors. Original cupboards are next to the fireplaces on both floors, as well as original mantels, trim and chair railings. The floor in the hallway and bedrooms are also original. The windows of "nine over six" on the first floor and "six over six" on the second floor include panes of hand blown glass.
