Friendship Hall

This fine example of American architecture built in the Post Revolutionary period was built by the Sulivane family. Son of an officer of Britain's King James II, who came to America in 1695; Daniel Sulivane served in the Maryland Assembly. His son James helped organize a local regiment of the colonial army called the New Market Blues. After the Treaty of Paris in 1783, he took out a patent for 911 acres of land which he called New Market. There is some evidence that this land had originally been set aside as an Indian Reservation. Sullivane built this brick structure which is well known for its Georgian details. It has benefited from recent restoration and is listed on the National Register.
