Wooodlawn Manor House was constructed in the early 1800s. Francis Scott Key was a visitor when the home also served as a private school. Dr. William Palmer and his son Benjamin were the longest property owners from the property from the early 1800s to early 1900s. In the late 1970s Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission purchased the property from the McKeever family and established a cultural park.
Today the Manor House and it’s outbuildings illustrate Montgomery County’s agricultural history. The outbuildings consist of a 19th century stone barn, stone springhouse/meat house, board and batten tenant house and log building which may have served as slave living quarters.

SOCIAL OCCASION PRIVATE EVENT RENTALS
At this time we are unable to host private social occasion rental events. In November 2017 Woodlawn Manor House and grounds transitioned from an Event Center to a museum facility.
Will Woodlawn Manor be available for social occasion rentals in the future?
Currently a feasibility study is underway to evaluate providing regular public access as a museum, hosting private event rentals and protecting the historic buildings at Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park. Check our website for updates.
