Did You Know?
During the War of 1812, the Debutts family found three congreve rockets on the Mount Welby (19th century name of the Oxon Hill Farm property) grounds. The British Navy was not aiming at Mount Welby. They were sending a signal to other British ships anchored 20 miles away in the Patuxent River.
