Houses Built Just for Spite

#2. THE TYLER SPITE HOUSE IN FREDERICK, MARYLAND

Prev Next

This 1814 mansion was built hastily by a local doctor who wanted to prevent the town from building a road through his property. A local law stipulated that the city couldn't build a road if a building was being constructed in the path of the road, so Dr. Tyler quickly ordered that a foundation be poured for this mansion. It is currently for sale.
