First a little background. While it didn't yet have a settled name, the original Colonial land ownership around Colesville dates back to the 1600's and the Calvert family, a succession of land barons who were also known as the Lords Baltimore. Farmers began buying large parcels from the Lords in the early 1700's, with the first actual resident farmer building a home around 1723. It wasn't until 1806 that the community became known as Coales-Ville, later shortened to its present name. By the 1790's, the first saw and grist mill had been built. The oldest standing house in town was also built around 1790 – a grand brick Georgian mansion that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
