Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 27, 1992):
Situated on a gentle hill with a panoramic view of Havre-de-Grace and the point at which the Susquehanna broadens to form the Chesapeake, this brick mansion was the seat of the sea-faring Rodgers family, the most notable of American naval families. Their generations-long careers cover the world and affect virtually every aspect of American naval history from the presidency of Thomas Jefferson to the New Deal.
