Downes Curtis Sail Loft

Oxford, MD

Built in 1899 as a school house, this local landmark was used as a sail loft by Downes Curtis and his brother Albert for sixty years. It was restored for use as a custom home in 2006 as a Maryland Historic Tax Credit project. Although major structural repairs and new mechanical and electrical systems were required, all of the original historic fabric was retained.
