The farm was established in 1780 and consisted of 261 acres. It was bought in 1860 by Christian K. Thomas, a Baltimore dry goods merchant. Some of the heaviest fighting during the Battle of Monocacy took place on this farm in 1864. During the Civil War, the Battle of Monocacy was significant in that it prevented the Confederate troops from marching on to Washington, D.C.
