      CHARLES COUNTY HISTORIC SITES SURVEY
      Phase III Final Survey Report
      B. Colonial Charles County: 1634-1790
      Simpson’s Supply 18th century; 1853; 1880
      CH-719
      Dentsville vic.
      Private
      Situated on an high rise at the intersection of Bowling Alley Road and Kentucky Avenue, Simpson's Supply is a frame three-part dwelling, constructed in the 19th century around the skeleton of an earlier
      structure. The dwelling faces northeast overlooking open cultivated fields on a 68 acre parcel that includes a number of contributing resources; a meathouse, garage, stable/granary, cornhouse, and two tobacco barns. All outbuildings with the exception of one tobacco barn, date from the first half of the 20th century and contribute to the overall intact agricultural landscape. The earliest tobacco barn, dating from the third quarter of the 19th century was inventoried separately (CH-720).
      Since the 18th century, the tract known as Simpson's Supply has been associated with the Dent and Edelen families. In 1853, Harry F. and Eliza Anne Edelen sold "a part of Simpson’s Supply” containing 180 acres to Peregrine Davis who substantially improved the property by constructing the existing main block around the earlier structure. In 1879, Peregrine Davis' daughter Victoria Hughes, sold the same property to Charles T. Bridgett who built the center block soon after. Bridgett family descendants own the property today.

      Simpson’s Supply Tobacco Barn circa 1860
      CH-720
      Dentsville vic.
      Simpson's Supply Tobacco Barn stands on a 68 acre parcel and is associated with a 19th century farmhouse and several late 19th and early 20th century outbuildings, surveyed in its entirety as CH-719. Likely constructed between 1853 and 1879, this is an excellent and well-preserved example of its kind. The barn is rectangular in form with a late 19th century shed used to store grains, and later modified to house equipment, attached to the northernmost gable end. Since the 18th century, the tract known as Simpson's Supply has been associated with the Dent and Edelen families. In 1853, Harry F. and Eliza Anne Edelen sold "a part of Simpson’s Supply” containing 180 acres to Peregrine Davis who substantially improved the property by constructing the existing main block around the earlier structure. In 1879, Peregrine Davis' daughter Victoria Hughes, sold the same property to Charles T. Bridgett who built the center block soon after. Bridgett family descendants own the property today.
