812 South Ann Street, Fell's Point, Baltimore City, Maryland, 21231.

According to Fedor's guide ( the Robert Long House is the "city's oldest residence still standing. This small brick house was built in 1765 as both home and business office for Robert Long, a merchant and quartermaster for the Continental Navy who operated a wharf on the waterfront. Furnished with Revolutionary War–era pieces, the parlor, bedroom, and office seem as if Long himself just stepped away. A fragrant, flowering herb garden flourishes in warm months."
