This small but gracious house was the 18th Century forerunner to the 'Little House on the Prairie.' Rarely over a thousand square feet in area, it was built on the large outlying tracts of land granted by King Carter of Coratomen to his favored people. In order to secure their claims, the recipients were required by Crown law to build a Patent House and visit the house periodically. Many of these fine small houses still exist today and are excellent for small properties and the first-time homeowner. The Patent House should, as it did for its owners of the 18th Century, secure sound investments.
