The Waddy House, also known as the Williamson farm or the Jarvis Ballard house, is one of a small collection of mid-18th century brick houses surviving in Somerset County, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
This group of early houses represent the most expensive dwellings erected at the time and exhibit finely executed Flemish bond walls, glazed checker board pattern brickwork, and finely crafted interior paneling. Compared to the other eight houses in this group, the Waddy House is the least altered, and exhibits the fine glazed header Flemish bond wall construction and an alternating glazed brick segmental arch pattern found at the grand properties of "Almodington" and "Arlington."
The four-room first floor interior retains a significant portion of its mid-18th century woodwork with a turned baluster stair and a raised-panel overmantel in the parlor.
When the house was scheduled for demolition in 2018, the Trust was able to save it by moving it to a nearby property on Perryhawkin Road in Princess Anne.
